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.

For a complete evaluation of your risks, see your health care 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.

Two vaccines are also available to prevent infection by certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV), a major cause of cervical cancer. The vaccines are approved for females (and males) ages 9 to 26.

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 20 percent are older than 65. Early cervical cancer and precancerous conditions of the cervix have no symptoms. This assessment will help you determine 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.

How old were you when you first had sexual intercourse?
Have you had sexual intercourse with more than one partner?
When was your last Pap test?
Do you have a family history (mother or sisters) of cervical cancer or cervical dysplasia?
Please check the box if you ever been diagnosed with:
Do you smoke?
Do you eat two or more cups of fruits and vegetables on most days?

Osteoporosis Risk Assessment for Women

Osteoporosis Risk Assessment for Women

Osteoporosis is a chronic disease that slowly weakens bones until they break easily. It is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors and, in some cases, by medical conditions or medications. Millions of Americans over age 50 have osteoporosis. In addition, millions more have low bone mass, which puts them at risk for the disease. Osteoporosis primarily affects women; one in two U.S. women and one in four U.S. men over 50 will suffer a broken bone in their lifetime related to osteoporosis. If you are a woman, use this tool to assess your risk for developing this disease.

What is your ethnicity?
Do you have a history of anorexia nervosa or another eating disorder?
Do you have a history of heavy alcohol use (averaging more than 1 drink daily) or alcoholism?
How many glasses of milk, or equivalent dairy products, do you drink daily?
Do you have a family history of osteoporosis?
