    Definition of breast cancer risk assessment

    Breast cancer risk assessment takes into account many aspects of a woman’s health and family history to calculate whether she may be more likely than average to develop breast cancer.

    You and your doctor can use results from a breast cancer risk assessment to determine when to begin breast cancer screening and how often it should be repeated. A breast cancer risk assessment may also help you and your doctor decide whether you should consider measures to prevent breast cancer, such as medications or surgery.
