Talk to your doctor about your family history
If cancer seems to run in your family, consider taking an important, and possibly lifesaving step — genetic counseling. It can empower you by providing information about your cancer risks, the likelihood that your family’s history of cancer is hereditary and your options for genetic testing. HonorHealth develops your testing plan based on family history and individual needs, saving you money and focusing on the right genetic targets. Call 623-434-6138 to schedule an appointment with a genetic counselor.
Get regular mammograms
Mammograms are one of the best tools we have to diagnose breast cancer early, which increases your odds of beating cancer. Talk to your doctor to determine the best schedule for your screenings, which may vary based on family medical history and other risk factors. Call 623-580-5800 to schedule your mammogram screening.
Please note: If you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine, the Society of Breast Imaging recommends that you wait four to six weeks after vaccination before scheduling your mammogram.
