There is limited published literature on the risk of breast cancer in transgender patients. We report a case of an aggressive triple negative inflammatory breast cancer in a male‐to‐female transsexual. This patient had a complicated psychiatric history with significant antipsychotic use, and the case raises several questions about the pathogenesis of this breast cancer. The literature on breast cancer in transgender patients and in relation to hyperprolactinaemia is reviewed.
