Abstract

The incidence of multiple primary neoplasms has been increasing over the years. Within this group, the coexistence of primary prostate cancer and primary colorectal cancer is one of the most frequent. The objective of this case report is to present the case of a 76-year-old male patient who presented the diagnosis of prostate cancer and synchronous rectal cancer. To this end, his clinical history in the oncological service of the Hospital Militar Central del Perú (tertiary hospital) has been reviewed.
