She asks about her risk of developing breast cancer, based on the family history. A Bayesian calculation is used to assess her mother’s chance of having inherited the familial mutation. ) Joint probability ½×3/10=3/20 ½×1=½ Express using same denominator in each column 3/20 10/20 Odds ratio (odds that Margaux’s mother inherited the mutation) 3:10 Risk expressed as a fraction or percentage (chance that Margaux’s mother inherited the mutation) As the chance that Margaux’s mother has inherited the BRCA2 mutation that was identified in other family members is 3/13Margaux’s own risk is 3/25 or 11%.
