From 1982 to 1988, 16 cases with bilateral primary breast cancer were confirmed pathologically and treated in our hospital.These cases accounted for 2. 5 % of all cases of breast cancer during the same period. There were synchronoulIy 4 cases and metachronously 12 cases with breast cancer. The 5 - year survival rates were 25 % and 67 % respectively. In the paper, diagnosis bigh- risk factors and other rele-vant problems have been discussed. All treated patients with breast cancer should be followed up closely,if there are any abnortnal physical find-ings in the opposite breast, especially,the biopey should be considered for high- risk group.
