In relation to their experience, the Authors affirm that currently an early diagnosis of breast cancer, in an absolute preclinical stage, is obtainable by adequate screening using specific methods especially among women who are at greater risk. Primary prevention is not achievable at present; however some considerations based on protocols which provide a surgical prophylactic therapy in high risk breast pathologies and in very selected patients, are possible. In the light of these considerations secondary prevention has a predominant role and may be more effective and curative if the treatment is carried out in the earliest stages of the disease.
