This study examined how Internet-based cancer risk calculators presented individualized risk estimates to the public. The 47 calculators varied in their use of empirically-supported risk communication strategies. The type of organization responsible for the website (government, cancer center, etc) was associated with differential use of risk communication strategies. Organizations should refer to the existing risk communication literature before developing an Internet-based cancer risk calculator.
