Abstract

Many factors determine a woman's risk of breast cancer; some genetic are related to family history, others are based on personal factors such reproductive and medical history. A high-risk woman must benefit of a specific screening regimen including breast examination, mammography, ultrasonography and contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance. But she can also benefit of chemo prevention or/and risk-reducing surgery such bilateral prophylactic salpingo-oophorectomy and bilateral prophylactic mastectomy.
