Breast cancer is a major burden to society and individuals with 49 564 new cases and 11 633 deaths in the UK in 2010. A woman in the UK has an up to 1 in 8 lifetime risk of developing breast cancer1 and 20% of women with breast cancer will have a positive family history.2 While the management of breast cancer is carried out largely in specialist care, the ability to potentially intervene in people at increased familial risk of breast cancer will enhance the role of primary care.
