Keywords: Renal cell carcinoma, Breast cancer, Synchronic tumor
Renal cell carcinoma is the most frequently encountered malignancy of the kidney, and breast cancer is the the most frequent one in women. Synchronous occurrence of these two malignancies has rarely been reported. In this case, we presented a case of synchronous breast cancer and renal cell carcinoma. In patient with malignancy, it should be kept in mind that masses which are present or newly determined can be synchronic or metachronic malignancies besides metastasis. Newly emerged symptoms during follow-up in patients with cancer should be taken into consideration, and be kept in mind that secondary tumors can be determined in one of every 20 patients in whom malignant tumour was determined.
