Multiple primary malignancies are nowadays commonly detected due to better radiological techniques, greater awareness and an increase in number of elderly cancer survivors. We are reporting a rare case of patient having dual synchronous malignancy of carcinoma left lower alveolus and ductal carcinoma in left breast who presented to the department of surgical oncology and integrated breast care center. The patient is on regular follow-up, and currently, there was no evidence of recurrent or residual disease. No such case has ever been reported, and despite a thorough check on all, we are unable to find any previously reported case. Hence, to the best of our knowledge, this case is the first of its kind to have simultaneous presentation of synchronous dual malignancies involving left lower alveolar and left breast cancers.
