It is critically important to know your family’s history of breast cancer and begin regular screening mammograms starting at age 40. Some factors can increase your risk. You may not be able to avoid many of them. But being aware of your risk could encourage you to take other steps to protect yourself, such as getting regular mammograms or considering genetic testing.
Miami Cancer Institute can provide access to clinical trials not widely available elsewhere. Clinical trials find new ways to treat and diagnose cancer and are ongoing. If an appropriate trial is available, we will talk to you about the benefits and risks.
