BREVAGen - Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool

BREVAGen predictive risk test

The Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness has launched a high-risk breast cancer program that includes the state-of-the-art BREVAGen™predictive risk test. BREVAGen assesses a woman's unique risk of developing non-familial or sporadic breast cancer with a simple, in-office oral swab test.

BREVAGen uses Clinical Risk and Genetic Markers to assess individual risk of developing sporadic breast cancer. Once the risk level is known, the doctor will help develop a plan for monitoring the patient's breast health and recommend life changes that may minimize the chances of developing breast cancer.
