Article Title: Unilateral upper extremity lymphedema in metastatic prostate cancer
Abstract: Upper extremity lymphedema and cutaneous spread are atypical behavior of prostate disease and should be kept in the differential for selected patients. This presentation in these patients may be underdiagnosed and potentially an ominous sign. Our case adds to our continued learning of possible prostate malignancy behavior. © 2018 The Authors.
