Genetic and Familial Screening

Genetic Screening for Breast Cancer RiskOnline Questionnaire

Complete Cape Cod Healthcare's Breast Cancer risk evaluation questionnaire.

Good breast health requires planning and care, including understanding a patient’s risk. Cape Cod Healthcare is committed to proactive breast care to provide our patients with access to the best evaluation tools available.

We offer two advance breast cancer screenings to all patients that may alert them to an elevated breast cancer risk – genetic breast cancer screening and review of familial risk.

Genetic Breast Cancer Screening

The first step in genetic breast cancer screening is our breast cancer risk assessment tool. This questionnaire allows patients to answer questions online in the privacy of their own home or in writing at the time of their mammogram, to build an early picture of breast cancer risk. Those patients whose answers indicate the possibility of an elevated risk are referred clinical counseling and further testing, if necessary.

Review of Familial Risk

In assessing familial risk, patients meet with a trained clinician to build a history of breast cancer occurrences within their family – another indication of an individual’s risk. If the assessment indicates a woman is at high risk, further testing is offered.

Proactively determining breast cancer risk helps physicians and patients plan a long-term approach to breast health, whether genetic testing, more frequent imaging or other treatments are required.

Cape Cod Healthcare’s approach to breast care leads to earlier detection and better health.
