About Breast Health Center at Kent Hospital

Gender affirming care including breast cancer risk assessment and screening, genetic counseling and testing, gender-affirming top surgery (chest masculinization, feminizing breast surgery).

The Breast Health Center team believes that identifying with a gender that is different from one’s sex is part of the normal variety of the human experience and that people with all gender identities, including non-binary and genderqueer identities, deserve equal access to the highest quality care. We understand that it can be difficult to get personalized information about personal risk of breast cancer, screening recommendations, genetic testing, and gender-affirming surgery. People of all gender identities have varying levels of breast cancer risk, influenced by hormone use, personal and surgical history, as well as family history.

The Gender Affirming Clinic at Kent Breast Health Center offers personalized consultation to discuss your own personal risk factors.

Breast Cancer Screening

If you have had prior gender-affirming chest surgery or breast augmentation, or if you are considering it, we will review the recommendations for breast cancer screening, as well as ways to assess your own personal risk of breast cancer in your lifetime. We base screening recommendations on your body, not just your gender or sex assigned at birth.

Genetic Counseling and Testing

If you have a family history of any type of cancer, we can also connect you with certified genetic counselors for testing. Genetic test results can be used to guide decision-making about cancer-related screening studies and surgical decision-making. We will always start with a consultation so we can address all your concerns and questions about the results. Website is available in multiple languages, choose “Select Language” at top of page.
