GPs test 'online calculator' for breast cancer risk

A new way of analysing risk factors for breast cancer could soon be available in GP surgeries to help predict those most at risk from the disease.
According to a study by cancer Research UK, the new method takes into account more than 300 genetic indicators for breast cancer, as well as information on family history, weight, age at menopause, alcohol consumption and use of hormone replacement therapy.Combining all the factors has allowed researchers to create an online calculator, currently being tested by some GPs, practice nurses and genetic counsellors.
