Submitted with the diagnosis of male breast cancer, a male cadaver also displayed features associated with that of pancreatic cancer. These features include: enlarged appearance, nodular exterior and discoloration of the pancreas. Further analysis led to the discovery of splenomegaly, demonstrating a significant storage level of white blood cells manufactured to combat said cancers. Following extensive research, a comparison of the cause of male breast cancer and pancreatic cancer was derived. Ultimately, the significance of this dual cancer presentation lies in the understanding that both are rare in their diagnoses due to a lack of screening. This poses the challenge of determining if each cancer's development was independent or metastatic.
