Women in the United States have an approximate 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime. The main cause of death from breast cancer is from metastatic spread of the disease; with the most frequent sites of spread being to the bone, brain, and lungs. The urinary bladder is a rare site of metastasis that has been rarely reported on in the literature. Here we present a case of recurrent metastatic breast cancer found in the urinary bladder without findings of any other sites of metastasis.
