A carcinoma of the prostate gland is one of the commonest malignancies found in men contributing to significant morbidity and mortality because of its varied presentation. Known to mainly disseminate through the local, lymphatic, and hematogenous route, it can rarely metastasize to the supradiaphragmatic regions such as supraclavicular lymph node. We report one such rare case of adenocarcinoma of the prostate gland with Virchow’s node as the only initial sign of presentation, which was diagnosed after a detailed examination and advanced imaging modalities.
