Abstract

Metastasis from extramammary malignancy to the breast is rare, and metastasis of cervical cancer to the breast is quite uncommon. We report atypical sonographic findings of a rapid growing, single, and circumscribed mass with complex cystic and solid echo pattern in a 50-year-old female. The mass confirmed a metastasis from cervical cancer. It is rare, but the possibility of breast metastasis should be considered when a rapidly growing breast mass is located in between the parenchyma and subcutaneous fat layer.
