TOP CANCER RESEARCHERS SAY THEY'VE COME UP WITH A NEW MATH MODEL TO PREDICT A WOMAN'S RISK OF BREAST, OVARIAN AND WOMB CANCER.

THE PREDICTIONS ARE BASED ON COMMON RISK FACTORS SUCH AS THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN A WOMAN HAD, HER BODY MASS INDEX, HER USE OF ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES AND HER MENOPAUSAL STATUS.

FOR EXAMPLE, A WOMAN'S CHANCES OF GETTING ENDOMETRIAL CANCER DURING THE NEXT 20 YEARS IS ANYWHERE FROM LESS THAN ONE PERCENT TO NEARLY 30 PERCENT - DEPENDING
ON HER RISK FACTORS.
