Findings from this study indicate that Hispanic women have a significantly lower risk of breast cancer compared with non-Hispanic white women, and that breast cancer risk significantly differs between specific Hispanic subgroups, based on the Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool (BCRAT). Approximately 2.6% of Hispanic women, ranging from 1% of Central/South Americans to 3.7% of Puerto Ricans, are at high risk for breast cancer (BCRAT 5-year risk ≥1.67%) and may be eligible for prophylactic breast cancer chemoprevention.
