SUMMARY

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common cancer in men and the second leading cause of cancer death in men worldwide. Frequent metastatic sites of PCa are bone, lung, liver, pleura and adrenal gland. We hereby present a case of a 70-year old man with a history of prostate adenocarcinoma, treated with external beam radiotherapy, who consulted his urologist with a painful left hemiscrotum. An ultrasound showed a suspicious lesion in his left testis. Pathology of the orchidectomy specimen revealed a metastatic deposit of his prostate adenocarcinoma.

SUMMARY

Breast cancer often metastasises to bone, lymph nodes, liver and lung. In this case report, we present a 75-year-old woman with a suspicious mammography and ultrasound of the breast who had a synchronous painless renal lesion. On computed tomography, the renal mass was suspected of being a primary lesion of the renal pelvis, but anatomopathological examination of the nephro-ureterectomy specimen revealed that it was a metastatic deposit of invasive lobular adenocarcinoma of the breast.
