Abstract:

As the longevity of human’s increase and with scientific medical advances the occurrence of multiple primary malignant tumors (MPMT’s) will rise. Synchronous multiple primary malignant tumors are defined as the occurrence of two primary neoplasms within six months of each other. Overall, the occurrence of MPMT’s varies from 1%-16%, with HCC and multiple other tumors very rare and the synchronous occurrence of HCC and gallbladder carcinoma has only been reported 6 times. It is crucial to patient care that each tumor is identified correctly as they are treated entirely different and the prognosis for the patient is dependent on the stage for each.
