How Can I Determine If I Am at High Risk?
- Do you have a family or personal history of:
- Breast cancer before age 50?
- Breast cancer in two or more close relatives?*
- Breast cancer in a male relative?
- Breast cancer in both breasts or twice in the same breast?
- Ovarian cancer at any age?
- Do you have a family member who has a known mutation in BRCA1, BRCA2 or another breast cancer susceptibility gene?
- Do you have a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation?
- Do you have a history of biopsy-proven atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) or lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS)?
- Have you had chest wall radiation (for example, in treatment for Hodgkin’s disease) between ages 10 and 30?
