The Inova Saville Cancer Screening and Prevention Center is located in the pavilion of Inova Schar Cancer Institute. The goal of this center is to provide a home for cancer screening and prevention where we can advocate for people at all levels of cancer risk by eliminating barriers and maximizing each person’s health and well-being.

This location serves as a coordinated center for cancer prevention for people at both average risk and high risk of developing cancer. Our care model includes lifestyle mentoring and intervention, both of which are aligned with our clinical care. We will assess each patient’s individual risk of developing cancer through family history, lifestyle choices and environmental exposure.

We intend to conduct outreach, education and research throughout the entire community.

High Risk Breast Cancer Clinic

If you're at higher risk of developing breast cancer, you may need to be screened earlier and more often than other women do. We have specialized providers at the Inova Saville Cancer Screening and Prevention Center who can assist you in navigating options to reduce your breast cancer risk. You could be considered at high risk for breast cancer if you:

  • Have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer
  • Have an increased lifetime risk of breast cancer (>20%), according to a risk assessment tool
  • Have a history of atypical ductal hyperplasia, atypical lobular hyperplasia or lobular carcinoma in situ
  • Have a gene mutation that increases your risk for cancer including but not limited to BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM, BARD1, CDH1, CHEK2, NBN, PALB2, PMS2, PTEN (Cowden syndrome), RAD51C, RAD51D, NF1 (neurofibromatosis) or TP53 (Li-Fraumeni syndrome)
  • Have a first-degree relative (a parent, brother, sister or child) with a gene mutation, but have not had genetic testing yourself
  • Had radiation therapy to the chest when you were between 10 and 30 years old
