Risk assessment tool
Calculating a patient’s potential risk for breast cancer can assist in educating her and informing her ongoing health care.
This user-friendly, interactive calculator is intended for women who have not had breast or ovarian cancer. It will help them to gain a good understanding of their level of risk for breast cancer compared to another woman of the same age group.
The calculator only takes a few minutes to complete, and the relevant risk factor is explained at each stage.
It is important to remember that the results of this calculator are not a guarantee of absolute risk levels, and that all women are at risk for breast cancer, no matter what their risk category. Some women at increased risk never develop breast cancer, and some women at low risk may develop the disease.
