Tyrer Cuzick Score

Description of test:

The Tyrer-Cuzick model is a risk assessment tool that uses the patient’s personal and family history information, as well as BRCA1/2 genetic testing status, to ascertain risk for developing breast cancer. Based on the patient’s Tyrer-Cuzick risk score, modified medical management may be indicated for the patient. A provider that orders any hereditary cancer genetic test that includes the BRCA1 and the BRCA2 genes can also order a Tyrer-Cuzick risk score calculation in conjunction. However, a Tyrer-Cuzick risk score cannot be ordered/reported if a patient is male, is above 84 years old, has had a diagnosis or personal history of breast cancer.
