Pink nodule of the chin: an unusual presentation of metastatic carcinoma


Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most lethal urological tumor, often because it is widely metastasized at the time of diagnosis. There are reports of cutaneous metastases, most commonly to the head and neck, presenting late after RCC is diagnosed.
