Abstract

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, accounting for 15% of all cases in both genders. One in eight women in the UK will develop breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. We present a case of 72-year-old female with a history of left breast cancer diagnosed 13 years earlier underwent wide local excision, breast radiotherapy, and adjuvant hormonal therapy. A biopsy from the area revealed metastatic breast lobular carcinoma. Palliative chemotherapy or hormonal therapy is usually considered as the first line of treatment to control disease progression.
