Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men in the United States. However, skin metastasis from prostate carcinoma is extremely uncommon. Here, we present a 75-year-old Caucasian man with a history of metastatic prostate cancer developing multiple subcutaneous, erythematous nodules over the left anterior chest over a 3-month period. A fine needle aspiration of a subcutaneous nodule showed neoplastic cells consistent with metastatic prostate cancer. This case represents only the fourth reported case of cutaneous metastasis from prostate cancer to the chest wall and the ninth case outside the inguinal area.
