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:

  1. 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.
  2. A breast biopsy showing lobular carinoma in situ (LCIS), atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), or atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH) atypical changes.
  3. Increased mammographic density.
  4. Hormonal Exposure:
    1. Early onset of menses.
    2. Late onset of menopause.
    3. Fewer or no children.
    4. Late age at first childbirth.
  5. Obesity.
  6. Lack of physical exercise.
  7. Family history, including BRCA mutation.
  8. 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.
