A Rare Tumoral Combination, Renal Cell Carcinoma, Breast Carcinoma and Non- Hodgkin Lymphoma and Review of the Literature

Published on: 2017-10-18


Multiple consecutive cancers involving different organs in a female individual are presented. Here in, we present a rare case of primary left renal cell carcinoma (RCC), in which two different malignancies of left cervical lymph node and left breast were occurred consecutively. We present the case of a 84-year-old female with three primary malignant neoplasms detected synchronously. She was admitted to our clinic with left neck upper mass.The result of the left cervical lymph node biopsy revealed diffuse B large cell lymphoma, the result of the left breast biopsy revealed well differantiated invasive ductal carcinoma and the result of the kidney’s noduler biopsy was clear cell carcinoma respectively. Rituximab chemotherapy was started as the lymphoma treatment because of the patients age and low performance status. Pathological assessment of newly detected lesions in multiple primary cancer cases is important for the treatment approach.
