Welcome to Snehita Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool
This tool uses the A-J Model - a Mathematical tool developed to calculate a woman’s lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. It uses the following 7 parameters:
1. Current Age
2. Age at Menarche
3. Age at first live birth
4. Number of Live births
5. History of breast feeding
6. Number of First degree relatives with breast cancer
7. Total number of previous breast biopsies.
The “A-J (Augustine- Jose) model” calculates a Breast Cancer risk score that helps to determine the type and frequency of screening required.Higher scores indicate higher risk of developing breast cancer, and the need to undergo frequent screening for early detection.Low Scores do not guarantee absence of risk and routine screening is recommended. The tool is most accurate for women 30 years and above. Please note that the risks calculated and advice given here are only indicative and you should always consult a physician for medical diagnosis and decision making.
