Scope note: Two or more abnormal growths of tissue occurring simultaneously and presumed to be of separate origin. The neoplasms may be histologically the same or different, and may be found in the same or different sites.
Annotation: 2 or more neoplasms occurring simultaneously: do not confuse with NEOPLASMS, SECOND PRIMARY, a neoplasm following an earlier neoplasm but not its metastasis; coordinate with histological type(s) (IM) & each precoordinated organ/neoplasm term(s) (IM); do not use /compl with specific multiple neoplasm terms to show multiplicity; differentiate from NEOPLASM METASTASIS & NEOPLASM RECURRENCE, LOCAL: Manual 24.4.1.5, 24.4.1.6; MULTIPLE ENDOCRINE NEOPLASIA & its specifics are also available; DF: NEOPL MULTIPLE PRIMARY
