ABSTRACT

Prostate cancer is the most common noncutaneous malignancy of American males and typically presents with genitourinary symptoms, however, head and neck extension is a rare finding. We present a case of a 53-year-old male initially presenting with a large supraclavicular mass as the only complaint. After an initial non-diagnostic FNA biopsy, PSA levels, histology and immunohistochemical findings were consistent with metastatic prostatic adenocarcinoma. The patient was started on anti-hormonal treatment after diagnosis. Due to the increasing reports of such cases, we suggest PSA levels and appropriate immunohistochemical staining should be obtained on all unknown neck masses.
