At-risk women benefit from clinical breast exams at frequent intervals as opposed to the routine regimen of once a year.
According to the American Cancer Society, “5% to 10% of breast cancer cases are thought to be hereditary, meaning that they result directly from gene defects (called mutations) inherited from a parent.”(1)
Having a family history of breast cancer significantly increases the risk of developing breast cancer. It has been estimated that women who have tested positive for the gene mutation BRCA1 have a 65% chance of developing breast cancer and those with BRCA2 a 45% chance. (2)(3)
The sensitivity, accuracy and immediacy of SureTouch combined with the fact that the exam is radiation free makes SureTouch the right choice for women with increased risk of breast cancer.
