Inspira High Risk Cancer Program

Our high risk program is founded on the strong belief that Inspira Health should be a driving force for cancer prevention and early detection in our community. We offer tailored prevention, screening, and risk reduction strategies. It is our view that cancer can no longer be treated at a single point in time. Fighting cancer is a lifelong commitment.

Cut your risk of cancer with Inspira’s powerful new high risk assessment tool. 

With every mammography, Inspira offers a free cancer risk assessment so you can stay one step ahead of hereditary cancers. This includes breast, ovarian, gastric, colorectal, pancreatic, endometrial, and prostate cancers (for men), as well as melanoma. It’s just one innovative part of our comprehensive High Risk Cancer Program. 


How can I participate in the Inspira High Risk Cancer Program? 

One way is to talk with your physician who can refer you into the program, which is open to men and woman. Or, if you are concerned that your family history might put you at increased risk, call the High Risk program directly to schedule an appointment.

An extra benefit of getting your mammogram at Inspira is a free High Risk Assessment. The assessment is potentially lifesaving for those who learn they are at an increased risk of developing cancer.

Take 10 minutes to save your life 

At your mammogram appointment, you will fill out a short digital questionnaire —just 10 minutes to complete. The specially trained staff at all Inspira mammography locations can help with questions or concerns.

Inspira uses a powerful digital platform to evaluate the responses and mammography results against evidence-based guidelines to identify those with a higher than average risk for developing genetically based cancers.

Those with genetic ‘red flags’ will be offered the opportunity to work with our high risk cancer team. This caring, multidisciplinary clinical team will develop a personalized surveillance and/or risk reduction plan to detect cancer early or, even better, to reduce your risk of developing cancer in the first place.
