Abstract

Presentation of more than one malignancy at the intial time of diagnosis is rare. Recently we encountered a patient who was diagnosed with carcinoma esophagus found to have another incidental growth in his right colon at the time of surgery. When managed appropriately such patients do well depending on the stage of their malignancy. Here in this article we have reviewed the literature pertaining to multiple primary malignancy.
