Montclair Breast Center Introduces Online Breast Cancer Risk Quiz

Her decision to undergo a double mastectomy created a storm of awareness and controversy about genetic testing and surgical procedures for breast cancer prevention.

Angelina Jolie’s condition is known as hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome and accounts for 5–10% of all breast cancer cases. But according to Montclair Breast Center Founder and Director, Dr. Nancy Elliott, there is much more to being aware and vigilant about breast health than this one issue of genetic testing. She says, “Genetic testing is critical for some women, but genetic mutations account for cancers in a very small population of women overall, so it is critical to become savvy about all risk factors for breast cancer. Women need to know their family medical history of cancers and other disease, understand how diet, weight and exercise can impact their risk factors and certainly learn more about genetic testing if it is indicated to be of value for them.”

To increase awareness of breast health and risk factors for breast cancer, Dr. Elliott has introduced a free Montclair Breast Center Risk Quiz, available online at http://www.montclairbreastcenter.com. Surprisingly, the risk quiz consists of just eight short questions and an easy point system for estimating risk for breast cancer from 0–10 (average risk), 11–19 (moderate risk), 20 & Over (high risk) to Over 30 (highest risk). While not represented as a scientific result, Dr. Elliott suggests that this easy and quick quiz is a practical first step in hel
