Breast Cancer Risk Questionnaire - What Is My Breast Cancer Risk?
There are many factors that are important in determining a woman’s lifetime risk for developing breast cancer. These include:
- Age: The older you are the greater the risk of developing breast cancer. Four out of five breast cancers are diagnosed in women over 50.
- A breast biopsy showing lobular carinoma in situ (LCIS), atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), or atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) atypical changes.
- Increased mammographic density.
- Hormonal Exposure:
- Early onset of menses.
- Late onset of menopause.
- Fewer or no children.
- Late age at first childbirth.
- Lack of physical exercise.
- Family history, including BRCA mutation.
- Excessive alcohol intake.
If you have little or no family history of breast cancer, take this short screening test to determine your risk here.
If you have a strong family history of breast cancer, we recommend reviewing this genetic testing and cancer risk fact sheet.
