Two cancers

My brother was just diagnosed with kidney cancer and lung cancer. The kidney cancer was diagnosed from a lesion taken out of his brain and the lung cancer was diagnosed from a mass taken from his trachea. Has anyone ever heard of a person being diagnosed with 2 seperate cancers at the same time?

Within about a year I had been dx'd with RCC, Basal cell ca and melanoma. The basal cell is of no real issue. Melanoma is. Fortunately melanoma and kidney ca respond to the same treatments.

To get two cancers at the same time

Are you sure the lung cancer isnt metastatic tumours from the Kidney. Thats what I've got.

Within a 3+ year period I was diagnosed with melanoma, kidney, and prostate cancer all not related to each other. 5 years after that I was diganosed with RCC stage 4 with mets to the lung, thyroid, several lymph nodes, and the bone of my upper right arm. All in total it has been 12 years of financially, emotinally, and physically fighting this horrible desease. But I still have my sense of humour.

3 Cancers at once? I think you're just being greedy

2 at once but a total of 3 different types all not related.

Yes, me.

 

Thyroid, 2012

Kidney, 2013 

Phyllodes tumor, 2014

Colon polyps (benign, but premalignant change), 2015

Suspected melanoma, surgery in March, 2016.

 

My situation is very unusual though as I have a rare genetic condition called Cowden Syndrome.  I'm likely to be diagnosed with several more cancers before age 50.
