Risk Assessments and Resources 

Your risk from the most common women's health concerns depends on many factors. That's why it is important to educate yourself and talk to your doctor about prevention, screenings and your health history.

To learn more about your risk for breast cancer, cervical cancer, osteoporosis and urinary incontinence, take our free risk assessments below.

Breast Cancer Risk Assessment

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women (other than skin cancer). This short assessment will help you determine if you have major risk factors for breast cancer.

Cervical Cancer Risk Assessment

Most women are diagnosed with cervical cancer before the age of 50, and early cervical cancer and precancerous conditions of the cervix have no symptoms. This assessment will help you determine your relative risk.

Breast Cancer Risk Assessment

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, other than skin cancer. The American Cancer Society says the breast cancer death rate is going down. This is probably because of earlier detection and better treatment. This short assessment will help you find out if you have major risk factors for breast cancer. It is not a complete assessment of all risks. For a complete look at your risks, see your healthcare provider.

Cervical Cancer Risk Assessment

Cervical Cancer Risk Assessment

Cervical cancer was once one of the most common causes of cancer death among women in the United States, but today many cases of cervical cancer are prevented through widespread use of the Pap test.

Vaccines are also available to prevent infection by certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV), a major cause of cervical cancer, as well as many other cancers.

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), cervical cancer tends to develop in midlife. Most women are diagnosed with cervical cancer before the age of 50; about 15% are older than 65. Early cervical cancer and precancerous conditions of the cervix have no symptoms. This assessment will help you find out your relative risk for cervical cancer. This assessment is valid for women between the ages of 21 and 69 who have had sexual intercourse at least once and who have not had a hysterectomy with removal of the cervix.

Osteoporosis Risk Assessment

Osteoporosis Risk Assessment

Osteoporosis is a long-term (chronic) disease that slowly weakens bones until they break easily. It is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors. In some cases it may also be caused by medical conditions or medicines. Millions of Americans older than 50 have osteoporosis. Millions more have low bone mass, which puts them at risk for the disease. Osteoporosis mainly affects women. One in 2 U.S. women and 1 in 4 U.S. men older than 50 will have a broken bone at some point in their life because of osteoporosis. If you are a woman, use this tool to find out your risk of getting this disease.
