Bilateral Fungating Metastatic Breast Cancer: Case Report
- 17 Downloads
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among females; while incidence of breast cancer increase with age, yet screening programs in most countries stop inviting patients beyond the age of 70 years. In spite all the efforts and resources geared for early detection of breast cancer, fungating locally advanced breast cancer remains a clinical challenge with the majority of patients either have metastatic disease at presentation or develop distant metastases despite appropriate therapy, leading to poor outcome. We are presenting a case of a patient who presented with locally advanced, fungating, metastatic breast cancer in spite of a very efficient screening program.
