The rising incidence across all ages made prostate cancer the most commonly diagnosed noncutaneous cancer in men. As a result of increase in PSA screening worldwide, detection of prostate cancer in younger patients becomes more often. Metastatic disease is associated with poor prognosis especially in younger patients. Unusual presentations should not mislead clinicians and refrain from omitting prostate cancer as the most frequent cancer in men. Timely treating with chemo- and hormonal therapy will contribute to patients’ survival time and quality of life. Here in we report a young man who presented with a giant shoulder mass mimicking sarcoma which was concluded as prostate adenocarcinoma.
