Globally, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in females and a leading cause of cancer death. On the other hand, cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer among females worldwide. In the less developed countries, it is the second most diagnosed cancer and third leading cause of cancer death in women. Synchronous malignancy of the breast and cervix is rare due to different etiological factors. Comorbidities such as hypertension and diabetes are frequent findings in patients with cancer. In a study in this environment, diabetes mellitus was the second most common comorbidity in the elderly cancer patients. This is the case report of a 45-year-old homemaker with cervical cancer and incidental finding of a synchronous breast cancer.
