Breast Cancer Risk Assessment

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women (other than skin cancer). The American Cancer Society reports the breast cancer death rate is declining, probably due to earlier detection and improved treatment. This short assessment will help you determine if you have major risk factors for breast cancer. It is not a complete assessment of all risks. For a complete evaluation of your risks, see your health care provider

2. What is your ethnic group?
5. At what age did you have your first menstrual period?
6. If you are past menopause, how old were you when menopause began?
7. Have you had one or more children?
8. If you have had a child, how old were you when your first child was born?
9. Do you drink more than one alcoholic beverage a day?
10. Do you smoke?
11. If any women in your family have had breast cancer, check their relationship to you (check all that apply)
12. Was your mother, sibling, or child diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 50?
13. Have you had or do you have uterine cancer?
14. Have you had or do you have ovarian cancer?

This assessment is not intended to replace the evaluation of a health care professional.

Our highly-specialized team works together with state-of-the-art technology to provide you with the best care possible, ensuring the fastest, safest recovery from a non-healing wound, ulcer or injury.

The Center was a winner of the 2007 Clinical Excellence Award for outstanding clinical outcomes and customer service, presented by Diversified Clinical Services which has over 150 centers nationwide.

Applying an interdisciplinary approach, the Center's staff treats any non-healing wound. Plastic and vascular surgeons and physicians specializing in wound care comprise just part of this team.

Patients treated at the Center have wounds that are non-healing, such as diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, traumatic injuries, radiation injuries, and more. Non-healing wounds are usually treated with growth factors, vacuum-assisted closures and specialized dressings, and when indicated, hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

“Dr. (Julio) Montejo and his team did an excellent job of keeping me informed at every step of my treatment, in addition to educating me on how to complete daily dressing changes and compression wrappings so that I would have more control over my treatment and heal quicker. They were gentle, patient and thoroughly explained everything to me and answered my every question. They provided me with amazing care.”
