Abstract Breast cancer is the most common tumour in Italy in the female population, counting for about 40000 new cases every year. The psychological aspects of breast mutilation and the social and economic implications are receiving increasing attention. Despite of the diffusion of screening programs to detect pre-clinical breast cancers, 30% of patients still undergo radical interventions. Therefore, many women present serious limitations of their social-life that can lead to severe depression since, in occidental countries, the biological function of the breast is less considered than its primary role of femininity and sexuality. The gold-standard is to conceal oncological radicality and aesthetic preservation. The Authors present their experience analysing the techniques employed.

Abstract

Abstract Breast cancer is the most common tumour in Italy in the female population, counting for about 40000 new cases every year. The psychological aspects of breast mutilation and the social and economic implications are receiving increasing attention. Despite of the diffusion of screening programs to detect pre-clinical breast cancers, 30% of patients still undergo radical interventions. Therefore, many women present serious limitations of their social-life that can lead to severe depression since, in occidental countries, the biological function of the breast is less considered than its primary role of femininity and sexuality. The gold-standard is to conceal oncological radicality and aesthetic preservation. The Authors present their experience analysing the techniques employed.
