A few cases of synchronous breast ductal carcinoma and lymphoma have been reported in the literature. However, to our knowledge this is the first case report of a bilateral breast lobular carcinoma co-presenting with follicular lymphoma. Little is known about the pathophysiology of synchronous cancers of different tumor types, especially solid tumors co-existing with hematologic malignancies. In-depth review of these cases can shed light on underlying mechanism leading to synchronous cancer development.
