Breast, Endometrial, and Ovarian Risk Assessment SAS Macros
The Breast, Endometrial, and Ovarian Risk Assessment Macros (in SAS software) project absolute risk for breast cancer, endometrial cancer and ovarian cancer, respectively, in the batch mode.
Users can enter data on risk factors and projection interval ages for a group of women, and the macros will return the corresponding absolute risk projections. These programs may be useful for researchers who need risk projections for an entire study population.
The breast macro is appropriate for all races and ethnicities in the United States. The macros for endometrial and ovarian cancer risk are currently available for Caucasian and African American women. These models use information about a woman’s history of hysterectomy and/or oophorectomy. Adequate data on these factors was only available for these two groups of women.
