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 for recurrence and prognosis informs management strategies. Should neoadjuvant treatment be considered? Is breast-conserving surgery an option? What kind of radiation therapy is advisable? Should adjuvant treatment be initiated? The answers to these and other questions depend on the risk for recurrence, patient's health status, and personal preferences.

Do you know the key aspects of risk assessment and their implications in early breast cancer? Test your knowledge with this quick quiz.
