Abstract

Objectives: The present study aimed to evaluate the operation results of patients who were followed up due to breast cancer and were operated on due to gynecological pathologies or for prophylactic purposes, and determine the distribution of gynecological pathologies in breast cancer patients

Study design: Patients with breast cancer who had gynecological surgery in our institution between December 2015 and January 2023 were retrospectively analyzed in this cross-sectional study.
