Breast Cancer Risk Assessment

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, other than skin cancer. The American Cancer Society says the breast cancer death rate is going down. This is probably because of earlier detection and better treatment. This short assessment will help you find out if you have major risk factors for breast cancer. It is not a complete assessment of all risks. For a complete look at your risks, see your healthcare provider.

Routine care is the best way to keep you and your breasts healthy. Detecting breast cancer at its earliest stages is the main goal of routine breast care. However, other benign conditions, such as fibrocystic breasts or cysts, are often discovered during routine care. Although the incidence of breast cancer is beginning to decrease, one out of eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in her life. Mortality rates have decreased over the past several years because of early detection and improved treatment. Our system has two dedicated Breast Centers and comprehensive breast care programs at all of our Medical Centers.
