Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista

Abstract

The rationale for CPM in a patient who has had breast cancer is to reduce the risk of contralateral breast cancer (CBC) and possibly improve survival and quality of life. Other reasons for undergoing a CPM include relative ease of follow-up, reduction of anxiety for occurrence of a second breast cancer, and desire for symmetry that can be achieved with bilateral mastectomies and reconstruction.
