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. 

Target Audience

Internists, family practitioners, gynecologists, and oncologists. 

Learning Objectives

  • 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.
