The Breast Cancer Interdisciplinary Group has been working in our Hospital since 2000. In May 2010 the Breast Unit was formally established. The muldisciplinary team is composed of radiologists, patologists, breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, oncologist, radiation oncologists, nuclear physicians, physiatrists and physiotherapists, psycologists and dedicated nurses. We offer BLS, Radioguided Occult Lesion Localization (ROLL), skin sparing mastectomy and nipplesparing mastectomy with immediate plastic recostruction and also a multidisciplinary approach for risk assessment including a risk clinic, genetic counselling and surveillance program. The team meets twice a week for Patients evaluation and definition of diagnostic and therapeutic stategies; all proposals are discussed with the Patient. Our goal is to offer a tailored therapy to every woman at every stage of the disease. We are able to garantee psicological support to each Patient and her/his family as well as a rehabilitation program.
