Ersin Grkan Dumlu, Mehmet Toka, brahim Kln, Murat Baki Yldrm, Abdussamed Yaln and Mehmet Kl

A potential preventive option for women who have high risk of developing breast cancer is prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. However, this operation is irreversible. It is not ever possible to remove all breast tissue using total mastectomy, and a small risk of breast cancer always remains. Monitoring the patient and conducting a regular follow-up would be helpful. In this paper, we report the case of a 46 year-old female who indicated breast cancer following bilateral prophylactic mastectomy.
