There is increasing attention to prevention as a means to reduce cancer incidence. Prevention interventions or therapies in turn rely on risk assessment programs to identify those women most likely to benefit from education and lifestyle changes. These programs are usually based either on interviews to identify ethnic, genetic, and lifestyle factors contributing to risk or on physical examination of the breast. For the latter it has been shown that the parenchymal density pattern observed in X… CONTINUE READING
