Women from high risk breast families, with or without a BRCA1/2 mutation, need to manage their risk, yet little is known about how they understand, conceptualise and make decisions about risk. This symposium explores this issue from multiple perspectives, using mixed Australian and US data, and reporting new results from a very large, prospective study of high risk women.
