Know about Breast Density Law

The laws of breast density are applied in 30 states of America. Breast density laws vary, but women who undergo mammography should be aware of the risks of breast density.

Why it’s Essential to Know the Breast Cancer Risk



Understanding your risk of breast cancer will help you make informed decisions about your health. They can endanger factors that can be minimized or eliminated. Other risk factors cannot be controlled. It is recommended that women with an average risk of developing breast cancer at the age of 40 years have an annual mammogram. If you are at high risk, you may need to take additional measures to detect breast cancer and preventive treatment. Understand your risks and understand what it means to help you understand the risks and benefits of the tests and preventive measures that your doctor can evaluate and make informed decisions about your treatment.

Understanding the risk of breast cancer
The risk of breast cancer is expressed in two different ways. The absolute risk is the probability that after a while a woman will become infected with breast cancer. Relative risk, complete risk groups with specific risk factors and without comparison. For example, the total risk of developing breast cancer is usually 12.3%, but a woman's absolute risk varies according to risk factors, such as genetic predisposition, personal medical history or alcohol consumption. Relative risk helps women and their caregivers understand the consequences of individual risk factors that affect women's health. If a woman has a high risk of developing breast cancer, your doctor may recommend other methods of prevention and early detection.
Information is collected from patients to determine the risk of breast cancer using the Tyrer-Kuzhik model, a tool to calculate the risk of developing breast cancer in a woman. The Tyrer Cuzick model takes into account the following factors:
        Age
        Body mass index (BMI)
        Family history
        The period in the menarche, first live birth and menopause
        use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

Magnetic resonance of the mammary glands
The American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) recommend additional evaluations for women with an absolute risk of developing breast cancer at the age of 20% or more, depending on individual factors. The organization assumes that women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes or genetic mutations in the first degree with any of these mutations have other genetic predispositions or radiation therapy for 10-30 years, breast MRI, more on their annual mammogram.

3D Mammography

3D mammography is a relatively new method of breast imaging. As with traditional mammography, 3D mammography uses X-rays to create images of breast tissue to detect lumps, tumors, or other abnormalities. 3D mammography can produce more detailed pictures of breast tissue.

Breast cancer risk assessment: calculation of life-threatening risk according to the Tyrer Cuzick model



Early detection and prevention are more useful for people at higher risk of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cancer and the second most common cause of cancer death in women

The American Cancer Society (ACS) predicts that 40,690 deaths - diagnosed 246,600 cases of breast cancer in2016. However, early detection with adequate screening can reduce breast cancer mortality. And recommend a screening test for patients with primary care. 


Screening of high-risk women

One size is not suitable for all cases of breast cancer. Except for the USPSTF, all of these organizations offer more intensive testing for high-risk women. Although the USPSTF has not developed guidelines for high-risk women, it recognizes that its guidelines are not intended for high-risk women. NPs must identify high-risk women and perform more intensive tests as needed. ACS, NCCN, and the American Congress of Gynecologists recommend that women at risk for breast cancer ≥20% in their lives have an annual mammographic screening of breast MRI scans. The addition of breast MRI increases the sensitivity in the detection of breast cancer compared to mammography alone. NP can calculate the risk of developing breast cancer from different models.


Calculation of life expectancy in breast cancer

Different software models can assess a woman's lifetime risk based on family history and other risk factors.

Some of these models are BRCAPRO Claus, which provide an analysis of the presence of breast cancer and ovarian cancer, as well as an algorithm to evaluate the owners and Tyrer-Cuzick.

The Tyrer-Cuzick model is widely used and is commonly used to predict the risk of breast cancer. This model contains the complete set of variables and is the most sensitive of all models of breast cancer detection. Tyrer-Cuzick Model is very helpful to detect breast cancer on early stage.
