Background: In the literature prostate cancer and pancreatic cancer are acknowledged among most common tumors with limited screening test, and requires further investigation to be able to make a definitive diagnosis.
Case Presentation: A 46 years old young man, who was found, early in life to have prostate cancer and further diagnostic test over a period of time reveal an additional locally metastatic pancreatic cancer. He has a family history of some cancer; hence by definition the patient could have a possible genetic risk of cancer.
Discussion: Based on diagnostic and other pathological investigations, suggestive management for patient include active surveillance for the prostate cancer and low doses of combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy for the pancreatic cancer, and we also recommend a follow up care into both conditions.
