Discharge Diagnosis: Breast cancer (IDC)
The patient is a 51 year old female patient with a diagnosis of breast cancer. March 2006, the patient noticed a nodule during auto-exploration of her right breast. The nodule was slow growing. December 2006, a biopsy report confirmed Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma (IDC). The patient refused to have surgery. An MRI showed suspicious lesions on the base of the right lung. June 14, 2007, a Color Doppler sonogram performed on the breast and axillary areas showed a lesion in the breast, two right axillary lymph nodes and one left axillary lymph node with high vascularity, which appeared to be abnormal.
Treatment and conclusion:
After 7 days of SonoPhotoDynamic Therapy and a follow-up Color Doppler sonogram on June 22, 2007, results showed significantly decreased vascularity in the right breast with a corresponding smaller lesion (approximately 33.5% reduction). The lymph node in the left axilla had disappeared and only one lymph node persists in the right axilla.
