A 63 year old female presented to Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) in 2006 for a fine needle aspiration of a newly diagnosed abdominal mass found incidentally during a routine physical exam. The patient developed pulmonary nodules, which were sampled in 2007 and showed two separate malignancies. Years later, the patient presented with a palpable nodule of the left thyroid for which she underwent a Fine Needle Aspiration biopsy.
