What to Know About the Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool [Video]

Breast Cancer

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. And while mammograms successfully identify 80 percent of breast cancers, and are considered the gold standard in breast cancer detection, “you’re still missing 20 percent of patients,”  says Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi, a board­ certified ob­gyn—and Munn’s doctor. Olivia Munn was in that 20 percent: she had a clear mammogram three months before a bilateral breast cancer diagnosis and had recently tested negative for the BRCA gene.

To help close that gap, Aliabadi, who co-hosts the SHE MD podcast on women’s health issues, recommends women take a lifetime breast cancer risk assessment test by utilizing the free Tyrer-Cuzick test available online, learn about their screening options, and share the results with their doctors. “Because physicians are not calculating this lifetime risk of breast cancer, I made it my mission in life to make sure every woman can calculate it at home,” she says.
