Calculate Your Personal Risk Score

American College of Radiology® (ACR®) breast cancer screening guidelines now call for all women — particularly Black and Ashkenazi Jewish women — to have risk assessment by age 25 to determine if screening earlier than age 40 is needed.

Calculate your lifetime risk for breast cancer here

​​​​​​​If your lifetime risk for breast cancer is above 20%, then you are considered to have a high lifetime risk for developing breast cancer ( 1 in 5 women unlike average risk for breast cancer which is 1 in 8 women in the United States of America).

​​​​​​​Once you know your score, please feel free to contact us if you need help to understand more about what screening recommendations might be appropriate for you.

The ACR continues to recommend annual screening starting at age 40 for women of average risk, but earlier and more intensive screening for high-risk patients. The new ACR guidelines for high-risk women were published online May 3, 2023 in the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR ).

Other Notable Updates:

  • Women with genetics-based increased risk (including BRCA1 carriers), those with a calculated lifetime risk of 20% or more and those exposed to chest radiation at a young age are recommended to have MRI surveillance starting at ages 25 to 30. These women should start annual mammography at ages 25 to 40, depending on type of risk.
  • Women diagnosed with breast cancer prior to age 50 or with personal history of breast cancer and dense breasts should have annual supplemental breast MRI.
  • High-risk women who desire supplemental screening — but cannot undergo MRI screening — should consider contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM).

URPrecious 3D Breast Ultrasound would encourage women to have automated 3D breast Ultrasound as an alternative if unable to have breast MRI or CEM.
