A 27-year-old male patient was admitted to Dokuz Eylul University Hospital (Izmir, Turkey) with complaints of constipation and weight loss for a period of 4 months. His history was not significant, except for the early age at which he started to smoke, resulting in a smoking habit of one pack of cigarettes per day for 12 years. There was no history or evidence of cancer in any of his close relatives.
