Contralateral breast cancer: A tumor in the originally untreated, or opposite, breast. A new tumor in the contralateral breast is either a metastasis of the original cancer or a new primary tumor. Tumors that arise in the contralateral breast at least two years after the first diagnosis are assumed to be new primary tumors.
