Materials and methods Sixty-three patients of breast cancer attending breast clinic IPGMER, Kolkata were included in this study. All patients underwent surgery. Metastatic status and tumor were done. Immunohistochemistry was also used for further analysis. Results Statistically we have proved that advancing course of the disease, there is a tendency of the tumors to become hormone insensitive.
