    This is a very high risk situation with bilateral Breast Cancer, with locally advanced disease on one side . Therefore she will need all modalities of treatment including chemo, endocrine therapy, surgery and most likey XRT at the end of systemic therapy.. As she will need both hormonal therapy and chemotherapy, these will need to be used sequentially. Since the neoadjuvant endocrine therapy experience is much more limited in comparison to neoadjuvant chemotherapy, I would recommend starting with Neoadjuvant chemo using a combination of 2 cytotoxic agents followed by local therapy (?bilateral mastectomy) and at the end using endocrine therapy as adjuvant therapy.
