Black Women's Health Study Breast Cancer Risk Calculator

09 September, 2022

This BWHS (Black Women’s Health Study) Breast Cancer Risk Calculator allows health professionals to estimate a woman’s risk of developing invasive breast cancer over the next 5 years. It was derived and tested solely in data from U.S. Black women. The tool uses a woman’s personal medical and reproductive history and the history of breast cancer and prostate cancer among her first-degree relatives (parents, siblings, children) to estimate absolute breast cancer risk—her chance or probability of developing breast cancer in a given period of time.

Access the tool here.
