Incidence of multiple primary cancers, though uncommon, is being frequently reported nowadays, owing to better diagnostic techniques, the prolonged life span, and the increased incidence of long-term survival of cancer patients. In our case, lung mass in a patient with prior history of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urinary bladder on evaluation turned to be small cell carcinoma. Dual malignancy of different cells in different organs is rare, and very few case reports are reported. We report a rare case of novel combination of multiple primary carcinomas reported as TCC of the bladder and small cell carcinoma of the lung.
