Breast Cancer Family History Assessment

Many factors can influence a person’s chances of developing breast cancer. Some are familiar, such as age and being female. Other, less-obvious, risk factors may also put some individuals at higher risk for breast cancer (and related cancers). These include personal and family medical history.

This Breast Cancer Family History Assessment can help identify individuals who could have a higher risk for breast and related cancers. Those identified as high risk could benefit from genetic testing.

This evaluation is based on the guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). It is not a complete review of all breast cancer risks. For a complete evaluation of your risks, see your health care provider.

This assessment contains a maximum of 20 questions. They focus mainly on your personal medical history and your family history of breast cancer and other types of cancer. The number of questions you will answer will vary depending on your responses to the previous questions.

Please answer as many questions as you can based on your own and your family’s cancer history. You can always re-take the assessment at another time if you gather more information.

When you complete the assessment, you will be given recommendations based on the answers you provided. Read through the recommendations carefully and print out your answers to share with your health care provider.

Note: This assessment is not intended to replace the evaluation of a health care professional.
