Synchronous Cancer

(redirected from Simultaneously detected tumours)
Currently there is no consensus on the definition of synchronous cancer. Among the proposed definitions are
(1) Two or more histologically distinct simultaneously detected malignancies
(2) Two or more histologically distinct malignancies diagnosed during the same hospital admission
(3) Two or more histologically distinct malignancies arising in the same site, following each other in sequence by less than 2 months
