Serum ferritin (SF) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) was estimated in 117 patients presenting with a breast lump and in 40 controls. Both pre and post treatment values were determined. Both the values were significantly higher in breast malignancies (p = 0.00) and also corresponded with the clinical stage and bulk of the tumour. The fall in post treatment values was proportional to the response to therapy. Persistent rise in values in the post treatment period was indicative of local recurrence of metastasis.
