Abstract

Women vary enormously in their risk of breast cancer, but screening and prevention programs in Australia and across the world have largely ignored this despite new strong risk factors being identified in the last few decades. We are developing better risk measures based on genetics, mammograms and family history. We are making new and improved risk prediction tool (BRISK) widely accessible to women, and to their health providers, on the Internet.
