A Rare Case of Multiple Primary Lung Cancers in a Single Patient

This is an exciting new project that I am working on in collaboration with pathologists at the Mayo Clinic and Western University, Ontario. In this study, we will detail an MPLC-case in which two rare primary tumors were identified. One of the more difficult aspects when evaluating a patient’s tumor staging, prognosis, and treatment strategy is whether metastasis has occurred, a diagnosis made all the more difficult when MPLC are suspected.

Currently, in progress with a potential publish date in December 2020. Currently under a peer-review.
