Cancer Risk Assessment and Prevention Program

Comprehensive Evaluation of Cancer Risks

Loyola Medicine is proud to offer you the cancer risk assessment and prevention program, which was developed for individuals who have concerns about developing breast, gastrointestinal or ovarian cancers. The program offers a comprehensive evaluation of cancer risk, discussion of available clinical trials and recommendations for care.

You may be at risk if you fall into one of these categories:

  • Women who have a history of biopsies
  • Women who have increased breast density
  • Women who had radiation therapy at an early age
  • Women with a family history of breast, ovarian and other cancers

Loyola’s cancer risk assessment and prevention team includes medical oncologists, surgeons specializing in breast, gastrointestinal and ovarian cancers and a genetic counselor specially trained in cancer genetics.

We provide you with an individualized family history analysis, a risk assessment, genetic counseling and screening recommendations.
