Conclusion

Our results show how  the symptom is a certain positive predictive value (PPV) even in a screened women population. Our study suggests that a shorter follow-up than 2 years, which is the nowdays italian timing, it could be a better timing for screening program in order to avoid diagnosis of cancer as a palpable lesion and decrease the anxiety in woman with palpable breast mass.
