Genetics - Who is At Risk for Breast Cancer?
Breast Cancer is the second most common cancer. Early detection can possibly reduce the spread of cancer impacting a patient's survival rate. Scientists are trying to better understand which people are more likely to get certain types of cancer. Looking at a patient's age, family history and exposures during life can help inform the need for further screenings such as genetic testing. A more thorough and careful review of a patient's history through the use of genetic screenings can make an efficient use of a patient's most critical time.
Internists, family practitioners, gynecologists, and oncologists.
- Discuss breast cancer genetic testing qualifications.
- Identify key patient demographic at high risk for breast cancer.
- Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
