Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare cutaneous neuroendocrine tumor arising predominantly on sun-exposed skin among the elderly. The most common location is the head and neck, followed by the extremities. MCCs are highly aggressive tumors and rarely undergo spontaneous regression. We report a case of MCC which presented as a painless breast lump in an elderly male where the tumor regressed spontaneously after a biopsy.
