Multiple Primary Cancers (MPCs) are defined as two or more malignancies in a single individual without any relationship between cancers. Neuroendocrine carcinoma is a relatively rare tumour and its coexistence with other primary cancers is being increasingly recognised. Sometimes, the patients may present with the symptoms related to the other primary cancer (often described as second primary malignancy) which are usually more aggressive and the concurrent Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) may be detected later. We present a case of a 60-year-old female presenting with haematuria due to bladder involvement by carcinoma cervix. The coexistence of small intestinal NET was co incidentally established. The second primary malignancy in NET can occur even many years later and can be multiple involving different organs. Therefore, patients with NET should be thoroughly evaluated with regular follow up.
