Breast cancer screening, prevention, and management decisions are made on the basis of several factors related to family history, patient history, and — if a diagnosis of breast cancer is made — tumor type. Upon diagnosis, the determination of risk and prognosis informs management strategies. Should neoadjuvant treatment be considered? Is lumpectomy an option? What kind of radiation therapy is advisable? Should adjuvant treatment be initiated? The answers to these and other questions depend on the degree of risk associated with the patient's tumor.
