Author information

Abstract

We describe a female-to-male trans-sexual, aged 33, who developed breast cancer 10 years after cosmetic bilateral subcutaneous mastectomy and nipple reimplantation. The complex hormonal pathways involved and the implications for women undergoing prophylactic mastectomy because of a high risk of familial breast cancer are discussed.
