Breast Health Education

The Sam & Jennie Bennett Breast Care Center Helps You Learn More About Breast Health and Breast Care

The Bennett Breast Care Center has many resources available to help patients learn more about problems care.

Edu-Care information sheets and brochures are available for a wide variety of breast problems, both benign and malignant. Our breast cancer patients all receive a satchel filled with information that is put together for them by volunteers at the Dempsey Center. The information is tailored to the specific needs of each patient and includes information regarding pathology, treatment choices and available resources.

Gail Risk Assessment is calculated for every woman who has a mammogram at the center. This assessment is a compilation of factors that help identify women who may have a higher risk of developing breast care than the average female. This information is forwarded to your primary care provider, who may then make further referrals for high-risk patients. The providers at the center are also available for discussion about the assessment.

Other tools for risk assessment are also available at the center including computer models such as IBIS and BRACAPRO.  Genetic counseling referrals can be made to assist high-risk patients in making treatment decisions.
