Here, we report a 26-year-old Chinese woman diagnosed with breast cancer. The patient expressed her concern for possible impact on fertility, as well as the cosmetic outcomes of the surgery. Therefore, the patient was consulted for preserving fertility function by cryopreservation after ovariectomy, with sentinel lymph node biopsy and breast reconstruction surgery simultaneously. With the development of health care and the growth of economy, as well as the general awareness of full-round health, the need for reproductive preservation of young female breast cancer patients in developing countries is also increasing. Thus we recommend actively providing patent education for the reproductive protection operation on a regular basis, to reduce the cases of patients who suffer from a decline in fertility
