Abstract
Breast cancer is a common malignancy in women and metastasizes to the liver, the lung, the brain, and the bone, but metastasis to the colon is rare. We describe a 58-year-old woman with colon metastasis of breast cancer. She was diagnosed with right colon cancer, and during investigation for colon cancer, we found a breast cancer. She received a palliative right hemicolectomy due to obstruction before chemotherapy. The histology of the tissue taken from the right colon was shown to be the same as that of the left breast mass. This is a case of colonic metastasis from breast cancer and we report this case with a review of literature.
Key Words: Breast cancer; Metastasis; Colon cancer
