[A case of squamous cell cancer of the breast in which effective hemostasis was obtained by preoperative emergency radiation].

Abstract

A case was a 40-year-old woman. Her right breast was presented with massive bleeding ulcer and fixed with a pectoral muscle. Diagnosis of Stage IIIb breast cancer( T4b, N1, M0) showed a high inflammatory response and severe anemia. Palliative surgery was difficult because of hemostasis, and her general health also was in poor condition. The pathological diagnosis was squamous cell cancer. We underwent a total of 30 Gy radiation emergency hemostasisose. After radiation and chemotherapy, the lesion was undergone a radical surgery, and was reduced in size significantly. It was diagnosed as squamous cell cancer, which was more sensitive to general radiation so neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy was effective.
