About this study
The primary aim of this study is to determine if the addition of an individual polygenic risk score (PRS), in addition to the standard National Cancer Institute's Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool (BCRAT) or Tyrer-Cuzick (IBIS) score, will aid women at risk of breast cancer in making a decision to take (or not take) medications to prevent breast cancer.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- Women > 35 years old and < 75 years old
- Women with either of the following:
- NCI-BCRAT 5 year risk of ≥ 3% which corresponds to the level in which there is moderate evidence of treatment benefit outweighing risk according to the US Preventative Services Task Force or
- Women with a IBIS (Tyrer-Cuzik) score for the 10 year risk of breast cancer of ≥5%
- Able to participate in all aspects of the study
- Understand and signed the study informed consent
- Women whose BCRAT falls below the threshold (<3 % 5 year risk) of moderate benefit according to the US Preventative Task Force AND Women whose IBIS score is <5% for the 10 year risk
