The authors describe the occurrence of a 55-year-old female patient presenting with a vulvar melanoma, endometrial polyp, and a prior history of breast carcinoma excised from the left chest wall, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and tamoxifen maintenance for two years. This case exemplified second primary vulvar melanoma following breast cancer and supported that radiotherapy might play a role in the onset of secondary cancer. This case report also emphasizes the onset of endometrial polyp induced by tamoxifen.
