About Cancers of Unknown Primaries

In spite of the increasing sophistication in the diagnostic workup for malignancies, detailed investigations fail to reveal a primary site of origin for a subset of patients with metastatic cancer. This is often referred to as Carcinoma of Unknown Primary (CUP) origin or occult primary malignancy. Usually, when cancer spreads, the secondary cancer cells look like abnormal versions of the primary cancer cells (in the tissue where the cancer began). For example, if breast cancer spreads to the lungs, the metastatic tumour in the lung is made up of cancerous breast cells (not lung cells) and is then described as metastatic breast cancer (not lung cancer). If it is not possible to identify the type of cancer cells, the diagnosis is CUP. The inability to identify a primary site of cancer poses many challenges. The primary site of cancer usually dictates the treatment, expected outcome and overall prognosis. The diagnosis of carcinoma of unknown primary thus generates anxiety among patients and caregivers, who may feel that the evaluation has been incomplete.
