As I have discussed previously, breast cancer is a bad problem in Nigeria. in the past several days, I have seen 2 patients aged 25 years with breast cancer. Many patients present in the late stages with necrotic tumors.
|Young female with breast cancer|
This poor woman has an enormous cancer. Immediately after I took this picture, the tumor started hemorrhaging. The patient lost several units of blood before I got her to the operating room and performed an emergency radical mastectomy! She is doing well now.
|Hemorrhagic breast cancer|
This poor lady has recurrent breast cancer in the axilla. She had a previous modified radical mastectomy but I suspect the axilla was inadequately treated.
