High Risk Cancer Surveillance Program

If you are concerned that you may have a high risk for hereditary cancer you can contact the program directly. Additionally, every patient who comes to an Inspira Imaging Center for a mammogram is given a high-risk cancer assessment called Inspira Insight—a short screening questionnaire to assess your risk. Or you can complete the questionnaire online. The questionnaire is easy to complete, and your results are available immediately.

Start Your Risk Assessment

Surveillance and prevention is vital for anyone at a higher risk for hereditary cancers including breast, ovarian, gastric, colorectal, pancreatic, melanoma, endometrial and prostate cancers.

Inspira’s Approach to Cancer Surveillance

If the results of your Inspira Insight cancer risk assessment show that you may be at a higher risk for developing breast or another hereditary cancer, we recommend you meet with our high-risk coordinator, a nurse practitioner trained in genetics. They can help you further assess your results, answer any questions and develop a personalized plan for early detection and prevention of cancer. Genetic testing may be recommended.

Prior to scheduling your appointment with the high-risk coordinator, we will contact your physician for a referral to our program. Most insurance plans will provide coverage for an office visit to discuss your family history. The high-risk coordinator’s office will confirm your coverage when they contact you to schedule your appointment.

If you already know you may be at higher risk for hereditary cancers, such as breast cancer, you can be referred to the program by a primary care provider or you can contact the program directly without first having a screening.

Program Services

Our high-risk cancer surveillance program offers screening and counseling to help you lower your risk of getting cancer in the future.

For example a plan for someone with a high risk of breast cancer may include:
  • Screening or diagnostic mammogram annually or as recommended
  • Ultrasound or breast MRI if recommended
  • Education on how to conduct a breast self-exam
  • Genetic counseling and possible testing
  • Clinical breast exam
  • Education materials on breast and other cancer risks
  • Ongoing surveillance and support
The Inspira High-Risk Cancer Surveillance Program and the Inspira Insight high-risk cancer assessment are an innovative part of our comprehensive cancer services.
