Cutaneous metastasis from lung cancer is less common than metastasis from other organs. However, lung cancer is the most common origin of cutaneous metastasis in men and the second most common in women. Recognition of cutaneous metastatic cancer is important because it can be the first sign of visceral cancer. Although skin metastasis can appear on any cutaneous surface, the most common site is the chest wall. The prognosis for patients having lung cancer with cutaneous metastasis is very poor because the disease is advanced, with the involvement of other sites such as the brain, liver, bone, and adrenal gland. Herein, we report a case of an 87-year-old male with an undifferentiated metastatic carcinoma of the scrotum originating from lung cancer which was found later than the cutaneous metastatic cancer.
