NICE guidelines [CG164] Published date:

Next review date: June 2015

This clinical guideline updates and replaces NICE clinical guideline 41 (published in October 2006).

It offers evidence-based advice on the classification and care of people at risk of familial breast cancer. It also makes recommendations on genetic testing thresholds, surveillance and risk reduction and treatment strategies for people with a diagnosis of breast cancer and a family history of breast, ovarian or a related cancer.

These areas are not covered by NICE clinical guideline 80 (Breast cancer: early and locally advanced, published in February 2009).
