Prof Paul Pharoah - University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK

Prof Pharoah speaks with ecancertv at EACR 2016 about mammographic screening, and the contributions of multiple genetic variations in determining risk.

He outlines how breast cancer is best positioned to incorporate polygenic risk assessment to reduce mortality, and how improved screening can help reduce the risks of overdiagnosis.
