Understanding Your Personal Risk of Breast and Ovarian Cancer


Bright Pink, a national nonprofit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer, wants to help you understand how your personal health history, family health history, and lifestyle all work together to influence your risk of these cancers.

We know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. It is the leading cancer diagnosis in women. And, while less common, 1 in 75 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and two-thirds will lose their life as a result of their diagnosis. However, when caught early, the 5-year survival rate for breast and ovarian cancer is greater than 93 percent. Visit Assess Your Risk and take a 19-question quiz to better understand your baseline risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
