Medicine and Health Sciences
The annual occurrence of Head and Neck caner (HNC) is documented to be more than 650,000 cases with 330,000 deaths. In the United States, it represents 3% of all malignancies and affects 53,000 Americans. Metastasis to the lung, liver and bones are considered the most common locations. Herein, We are reporting a case of HNC and an unusual synchronous gastric metastasis found on an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (EGD) after CECT scanning of Abdomen shows only the mass that related to stomach fundus and MRI pelvic no mass could be seen. Both cancers were poorly differentiation on histopathology, which raises the flag of possible disease aggressiveness and poor treatment response
