Women’s Understanding Of Personal Breast Cancer Risk — Does Education Level Matter?

A woman’s understanding of her own breast cancer risk is an important precursor for care. A valid estimate would allow for a greater opportunity to consider early detection modalities and chemopreventive medications. The objective of this study is to compare patients’ perceived breast cancer risk versus their calculated risk and then parse those findings by educational level.
