Breast Health Assessment

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in American women other than skin cancer. The American Cancer Society says the breast cancer death rate is declining. This is likely because breast cancer is found earlier through routine screening and treatment keeps getting better. Getting routine screen test and being aware of breast cancer symptoms are the key to finding it early, when it’s small and easier to treat.

This short assessment will help you learn if you have risk factors that may put you at a higher than average risk for breast cancer. It's not a complete review of all breast cancer risks. For a complete review of your risks, see your healthcare provider. Knowing your breast cancer risk can help you make the breast cancer screening plan that's best for you.

This tool is not meant for women who have or have had breast cancer.
