BREAST CANCER PRESENTED WITH OBSTRUCTIVE JAUNDICE CAUSED BY MULTIPLE LIVER METASTASIS: A CASE REPORT

Özgür TÜRK

Abstract

Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer in woman. Axillary lymph nodes, bone, brain, liver and lung are the most common metastatic organs. In this study, we reported a case of the breast cancer, 66 year old woman admitted to hospital with jaundice without any other complaint and gallstones detected at initial examination. Computed tomography revealed multiple hepatic mass. There was a palpable solid mass of 3 cm diameter in the left breast in a detailed examination. Grade II invasive ductal carcinoma with triple negative was carried out of tru-cut biopsy of mass in the left breast and liver metastasis. Paclitaxel and carboplatin treatment administrated. Early diagnosis of the breast cancer is the most important factor that affects prognosis. Self examination of breast and screening programs can be useful to diagnose breast cancer. The diagnosis of the breast cancer can be an elusive clinical status, such as in our case.
