Abstract A 56-year-old female patient was admitted to the urology outpatient clinic with severe macroscopic hematuria. She was diagnosed with right kidney cancer after clinical and radiological evaluations. Pathology reported a metastasis of invasive ductal breast carcinoma in the right kidney after laparoscopic radical right nephrectomy was performed. After physical and radiological evaluations, she was referred to the Department of General Surgery, and was treated with radical mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection for breast cancer. She was later referred to the Department of Medical Oncology at our institute for chemotherapy. We aimed for clinicians to be more aware of metastasis to the kidney, and perform regular and thorough breast examination for women every year.
