Inspira High Risk Cancer Program

The Inspira High Risk Cancer Program can provide a personal surveillance and prevention plan to anyone who is at a higher risk for hereditary cancers including breast, ovarian, gastric, colorectal, pancreatic, melanoma, endometrial, and prostate cancers.

How the Program Works:

Every patient who comes to an Inspira Imaging Center for a mammogram is given a high risk cancer assessment - a short screening questionnaire to assess their risk. The questionnaire is easy to complete, and your results are available immediately.

If your results 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. Our high risk coordinator is 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.

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.

You do not need to get a mammogram to participate in Inspira’s High Risk Cancer Program. If you are a man or women who may be at higher risk for hereditary cancers, you can be referred to the program by a primary care provider or you can contract the program directly.
