Abstract

Purpose: Multiple primary malignant neoplasms (MPMNs) are defined as a diagnosis of two or more independent primary malignancies of different histologies/origins in an individual. The frequency of MPMN is being increasing. In this study we aimed to determine the frequency and clinical features of second primary cancers (SPCs).
