Leora has a high risk breast screening clinic where she follows patients who are at increased risk for breast cancer. Such patients include those that have a family history of breast cancer, or patients who have had previous biopsies that predispose them to be at increased risk for developing breast cancer or people who have had prior chest radiation.
Patients are provided with individualized breast screening/imaging recommendations and risk reduction strategies are discussed. Screening breast MRIs can often be arranged. Genetic counselling for BRCA and other inherited cancers is also available and private testing can be arranged for those individuals not eligible for OHIP coverage.
