Risk Assessment

     There are many factors that can account for a patient's risk of getting breast cancer.  Estimating the risk can help you and your doctor decide if you need more comprehensive testing, and learn how to manage and lower your risk factors.

     Estimating your risk is done with a number of models.  Most ask a few simple questions, such as your age, age when first child was born, family history, etc.  The important thing to remember is that this is just an estimate of your risk of developing breast cancer.  A high risk number does not mean you have breast cancer or that you will get it in the future.

     To get an estimate of your risk, click on the following link.  This is a simple Risk Assessment Calculator that will generate a Relative Risk and a 5 Year Risk.  You are encouraged to discuss your results with your doctor and then decide if a more comprehensive risk assessment is needed.   

Risk Assessment Calculator

     If you and your doctor decide you need a more comprehensive risk assessment, please visit our Appointments page and set up a time to visit the USF Breast Health Program for genetics testing and counseling.

 

Hereditary Cancer Quiz

     Myriad Genetics has provided an on-line quiz to help assess your risk of breast cancer.  This can help you determine if you should be further evaluated by your Breast Health Physician.  Click on the following link to take the quiz.  Your results will be displayed so you can view or print them.  The results will also be sent securely to your Breast Health Physician.
