iconGeneral information

To calculate your risk, BRRISK uses a validated algorithm that incorporates New Zealand breast cancer prevalence along with your personal and family information you entered.

As the risk of breast cancer changes over time, we recommend you update your personal details when changes occur or if there has been a change in the information recorded about your family history. If you are attending regular mammograms, then this is also a useful time to review BRRISK. Remember to ask for your breast density measurement as this is a factor in assessing your risk.


Your BRRISK breast cancer risk assessment report confirms

5 year Risk of cancer

Your risk of developing cancer in the next 5 years is 0.00%. In other words, about “0 out of 1000” women with these risk factors will develop cancer over the next 5 year period.
