Chest wall tumors can arise from a wide variety of benign and malignant etiologies, and therefore it can be challenging for clinicians to diagnose and manage them. Isolated metastatic squamous cell carcinoma from cervical cancer is extremely rare. We report a metastatic chest wall tumor from cervical cancer arising after 19 years of disease-free survival. Wide resection of the metastatic chest wall tumor, followed by a polypropylene mesh and free flap reconstruction with adequate coverage was successful. The patient continues to be a disease-free at 2 years.
