Core Tip

Core Tip: Frequently, secondary malignancies are not identified in a timely manner or are misdiagnosed. Literature indicates that secondary malignancies occur sporadically and spread gradually. The survival time for secondary cancer depends on the extent of tumor lesions than the number of tumors. This paper presents a rare case of secondary cancer to provide a complete understanding to the medical staff allowing them to make early diagnoses and initiate rational and integrated treatments to prolong the survival time and improve the prognosis.
