Helping individuals at risk for breast cancer take control
It’s not uncommon for individuals to wonder about their chances of getting breast cancer. This is especially true if you have a family history of the disease or other risk factors.
The PATHS (Prevention, Assessment and Tailored Health Screening) Clinic at UW Health was designed with you in mind.
We work with you to understand your situation and talk about your concerns, and help you decide if genetic testing is right for you. We can put together a personalized screening plan and provide guidance on lowering your risk.

Are you at risk? We’re here for you
The more you know about your risk for breast cancer, the easier it is to make good decisions about screening. Using screening to find breast cancer early can be important to successful treatment.
You may be at increased risk for breast cancer and could benefit from the PATHS Clinic services if you:
Have certain known gene mutations such as BRCA1, BRCA2, CHEK2, PALB2 and many others
Have a close family member with a high-risk gene mutation but have not been tested yourself
Have had a close relative diagnosed with any of the following:
Breast or ovarian cancer
Breast cancer before age 50
Cancer in both breasts
Male breast cancer
A combination of several cancers on one side of the family
