The Existence of Metastasis of Cervical Cancer in
Advanced Breast Cancer
|Summary: Breast cancer is one of the
most frequent tumours in females. In most women it is detected in early
stages, but in some cases it is diagnosed in advanced stages with
metastasis on untypical locations. The aim of our research was to describe
a very rare case of a lobular breast cancer metastasis in cervix. So far
only 26 cases of a breast cancer metastasis on cervix were presented. In
this case, tumoral changes on cervix were practically asymptomatic with
slightly elevated discharge of unpleasant odour. This was discovered while
a patient was being prepared for a presentation at the Oncological
Consilium because of the advanced breast cancer. After a pathohistological
confirmation of both the initial tumour and the metastasis in cervix, the
patient was prescribed a systematic chemotherapy treatment. However,
because of a fast advancing malignancy in the lungs, the patient was
treated symptomatically. Unfortunately, she passed away quite soon. By
reporting on this case, we want to inform the experts that it is possible
to discover the breast cancer metastasis in cervix and that it is not only
a rare case that can be found only in specialised medical literature, but
also in patients in this area.
Key words: breast cancer, metastasis, cervix.
