Bilateral digital mammograms of right (Figure 1) and left (Figure 2) breasts in mediolateral oblique projection and of right (Figure 3) and left (Figure 4) breasts in craniocaudal projection, showing multiple ill-defined speculated masses (arrows) seen in both breasts in the right side accompanied by micro-calcified foci inside and well-defined oval-shaped small mass in the right lower inner quadrant seen on the right breast (arrowhead).
Multiple enlarged left axillary lymph nodes showing loss of the fatty hilum increased short to long axis ratio.
Bilateral synchronous breast cancer is an uncommon finding in women presenting with multiple breast lumps.
Controversies also exist about the origin of second cancer (metastatic spread or independent primary) and its prognostic significance.
Several reports showed that the prognosis in bilateral breast cancer was worse than that of unilateral breast cancer.
