Background: Breast carcinoma is one of the most frequent malignancies among Nepalese women. However, there is little case but male are also affected with this disease. Prognosis of breast cancer seems good if treated on time and better treatment guidelines. This study aimed to evaluate prevalence of recurrence or distance metastases in the breast cancer patients treated with conventional treatment protocol.

Materials and Methods: A single center descriptive retrospective study to evaluate the prevalence of recurrence or distance metastases in breast cancer by using cross-sectional study of ultrasonography findings of post treated breast cancer patients at BP Koirala Memorial Cancer Hospital. This study was conducted between 1st April, 2023 to 30th July, 2023 and 420 populations were included. Analysis was completed with IBM SPSS 25 Statistics.

Results: During the period time, total 420 patient’s reports were evaluated. There were 413 female and 7 male patients, included in this study with age group of 24 - 75 (Mean 47.45 with Std. Deviation 11.3%) years. Prevalence of local recurrence or distance metastases during follow up in breast cancer patients treated with conventional treatment protocol is 1.67%.

Conclusion: This study concluded that prognosis of breast cancer patients who were treated on time with proper treatment guidelines are really very good in Nepal.
