Breast cancer is responsible for one third of cancers presented in women. (#1) Breast cancer in Costa Rica is the number one cause of death in the female population. (#12) Worldwide, it is estimated that 1.4 million women a year receive a diagnosis of breast cancer, while 458,000 die of the disease. On average, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, (#8) for this reason it is considered a matter of utmost importance and effect on the national agenda. There is not one identified factor but multiple risk factors associated with the development of breast cancer. In recent years the rates of contralateral prophylactic mastectomy have increased in patients with a history of breast cancer, but its role in the management of newly diagnosed patients remains controversial.
