New breast cancer model developed for Hispanic women
A new model developed by Kaiser Permanente will help doctors assess the risk of breast cancer development in Hispanic women. The model is the first to assess breast cancer risk in Hispanic women. Previous models have been developed to examine breast cancer risk in non-Hispanic white, African-American, Asian and Pacific Islander women but not Hispanic women until now.
Researchers from Kaiser Permanente developed the new model as part of the National Cancer Institute’s online Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool. Click here for the full article.
