Knowledge is power. Having sound knowledge about your personal risk for breast cancer empowers you to make important decisions about your health--like when to begin getting a mammogram. Lancaster General Health has developed a Breast Cancer Risk Profiler to help you do just that.

Are You at Low, Moderate or High Risk for Breast Cancer?

The easy-to-use  profiler is an online tool that evaluates your lifestyle, heredity and personal history for breast cancer. It rates your risk as low, moderate or high, and provides valuable information on how to decrease your risk and live a healthier life. After you get your results, you can talk through any questions you have may have with your doctor.

Identify Your Specific Breast Cancer Risk Factors

  • Estimate your five-year and lifetime risk for breast cancer.
  • Compare your risk to the average for your age and ethnicity.
  • Identify your different types of breast cancer risk factors.
