From July 2009
Using the Gail risk calculator
In the past year, I have recommended that postmenopausal women in my practice calculate their 5-year risk of breast cancer using the Gail model calculator.
Over the past year, I have prescribed raloxifene or tamoxifen more often than in the past to prevent breast cancer in postmenopausal women at increased risk.
Note: These results should be viewed with caution, as they are based on limited data.
