New Service at Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center
Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center Introduces Service to Identify Women Who are at Increased Risk for Breast Cancer. Ambry CARE Program combines genetic testing and family history to identify high-risk women.
The Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital is offering a new program to identify women who are at increased risk for breast cancer.
The Ambry CARE (Comprehensive Assessment, Risk, and Education) program offers access to state-of-the art-clinical genetic testing and family history assessments, allowing the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center to better identify and manage patients with a high risk for cancer due to an inherited genetic mutation.
”We are very pleased to offer this unique program to our patients,” said Mara Shay, Manager of Women’s Imaging Services. “This service will allow us to identify women at increased risk for breast cancer and create a personalized breast cancer screening plan.”
The American Society of Breast Surgeons recommends, “that all women undergo formal risk assessment by age 25. Screening based on specific risk factors is recommended for women with an increased risk of breast cancer.” It is estimated that 2.1 million women globally are affected by breast cancer each year.
The Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center has been serving the Santa Clarita Valley for over 15 years, becoming the go-to breast care resource for thousands of Santa Clarita Valley residents. To learn more, visit www.sheilarveloz.com.
