Multicentric multifocal infiltrating ductal carcinoma poses a different approach to diagnostic workup and treatment compared to unifocal breast cancers. This is significant especially when discussing lymph node involvement, biological receptor chemo-based therapy and breast conservative surgery. In this case, a patient presented with unilateral right bloody nipple discharge, diagnosed with multicentric multifocal hormone receptor positive infiltrating ductal carcinoma, and performed lymph node biopsy and simple mastectomy. The patient was then followed with radiation therapy. We will discuss the different presentations of breast cancers and receptor status in multifocal breast carcinomas and how we treated it from a surgical perspective.
