    Therese B. Bevers, Parijatham S. Thomas, in The Breast (Fifth Edition), Breast Cancer Risk Assessment. Breast cancer risk assessment involves identifying a woman's breast cancer risk factors and determining her probability of developing breast cancer. It serves as a basis for recommendations on appropriate preventive interventions and screening strategies based on her level of risk. KNOWLEDGE SUMMARY PREVENTION: BREAST CANCER RISK FACTORS AND PREVENTION 2 KEY POLICY SUMMARY Planning • Prevention should be integrated into breast cancer control programs. • Guidelines on breast cancer .

    The Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool allows health professionals to estimate a woman's risk of developing invasive breast cancer over the next 5 years and up to age 90 (lifetime risk).. The tool uses a woman’s personal medical and reproductive history and the history of breast cancer among her first-degree relatives (mother, sisters, daughters) to estimate absolute breast cancer risk.   Cancer-Noncancer Risk Assessment Methods Harmonization Workshop Mode of action is a series of key events supported by a body of scientific knowledge that provide a biologically Cited by:

In medicine, this may include a person’s risk of having a child with a certain condition or disease, such as cancer.
