The ability to assess risk, recommend diagnostic tests, monitor and provide chemoprevention or other options for women at high risk for breast cancer opens a new era for breast health. The Pink Ribbon Clinic offers a unique venue to meet the needs of women who seek counseling and direction for breast cancer prevention.
Janell Seeger, M.D., director of the Pink Ribbon Clinic, helps women who are at high risk for breast cancer and their loved ones make informed decisions by assessing
breast cancer risk factors, recommending tests, teaching about prevention and monitoring results.
Women who may benefit from our services:
- Women with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer
- Women over age 65 with a previous breast biopsy
- Women under age 50 with dense breast tissue
- Women or their relatives with BRCA 1 or 2 mutations
- Women considering prophylactic mastectomy (removal of a breast without cancer)
The goals of the Pink Ribbon Clinic are to create awareness about breast cancer and to help women transform that awareness into action that can reduce their risk for developing cancer. Patients are seen at Norton Cancer Institute – Brownsboro on the Norton Brownsboro Hospital campus.
Concerned women who have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer should call (502) 394-6350 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
