BRRISK is a way to do more about preventing breast cancer. It’s an online place that stores and analyses essential information about you, your family history and your breast cancer screens. With BRRISK, you’re helping to manage your personal risk of breast cancer.
BRRISK uses a proven algorithm to provide you with an up-to-date breast cancer risk assessment report, based on your age, family history, reproductive history, genetics (including brca gene), hormonal profile, lifestyle and breast cancer screening results.
The results of BRRISK will assist your health professional with the decisions they make, whether this is additional surveillance or referral to a specialist or genetic assessment.
Understanding your own level of risk allows you to be properly monitored for breast cancer, right from your first mammogram. Changes in your lifestyle habits, screening results and family history of breast cancer can alter your risk, so it’s important to stay up to date.
BRRISK helps you to make the most of your time with medical professionals, because you arrive at your appointment fully informed about your current breast cancer risk.
Wondering how to reduce your risk of breast cancer? Like having a mammogram or smear test, personalised breast cancer risk assessment is an important tool to help manage your health.
A BRRISK assessment reveals your personal risk of developing breast cancer. If you’re at increased risk, there are steps you can take to manage this.
"As a New Zealand GP who wants to do more about prevention and early detection of breast cancer, I think BRRISK is revolutionary. I’m saying ‘do it’ to my patients."
"Overall I think this should be really helpful for women to sort out their risk - especially from the viewpoint that when you go to a surgeon or whoever to discuss your risk. A lot of it is not retained and it’s great to have an objective report you can refer to and think about subsequently."
