A 50-year-old woman underwent breast-conserving surgery and axillary lymph node dissection for left breast cancer in May 2003. She received chemotherapy and radiation for lymph node, lung, and brain metastases. In October 2015, because of abdominal pain and melena, she underwent colonoscopy for suspected sigmoid colon metastasis from breast cancer. We performed laparoscopic sigmoidectomy and diagnosed sigmoid colon metastasis from breast cancer after histopathological examination. Colon metastasis from breast cancer can occur, although it is very rare.
