Abstract

Most often tumor and malignancy-related problems present in an indolent fashion. However, every so often an occult tumor can present as an acute problem. This can happen with the chest (pain, respiratory distress), abdomen (pain, distention), and extremities (pain, swelling, limping, paralysis). Examples of such occurrences are presented in this communication. The objective is to familiarize emergency room physicians and radiologists with these potentially misleading clinical presentations.
