Synchronous and metachronous metastases significantly diminish the possibility of remission from cancer. Therefore, therapy needs to be highly effective and strictly individualised. The authors present a case report of a female patient after radical mastectomy due to breast cancer with incidental detection of peripheral lung carcinoid. The aim of the case report is to inform about current trends in primary lung carcinoid therapy through a surgeons and oncologists point of view.
