BRRISK - helping you to calculate your breast cancer risk online

June 19, 2022


Recently we encountered this well-validated tool, built on robust data, that can help women work out their personal risk of breast cancer.

It is very hard to get patients accepted to public genetic services to calculate risk, unless they have an extensive family history of cancer. For those that do not meet the criteria, this is a good method to determine personal risk.

For a small fee of $35, women can calculate their risk and send a report to their GP. For women with increased risk a mammogram every 2 years may not be proactive enough. This tool helps determine exactly what level of screening is recommended.
