What is the Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool?

The Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool is a computer program that was developed by scientists at the National Cancer Institute and the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) to assist health care providers in discussing breast cancer risk with their female patients. The tool allows a health professional to project a woman’s individual estimate of breast cancer risk over a 5-year period of time and over her lifetime and compares the woman’s risk calculation with the average risk for a woman of the same age.
