Metastases to and from the Lung

  • David H. Dail


Metastatic neoplasms to the lung are the most common category of tumor found in the lung. This chapter discusses general principles of metastases to lung, specific organ sources, and primary lung tumors and their own metastases. In autopsy studies, the lungs are involved with metastases in 20% to 54%1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 of cases of extrapulmonary malignancies, and in 15% to 25% the lung is the only site of such metastases.1 Some selected excellent reviews of the basics of metastases,7,8 their clinical, radiographic, and therapeutic details,7,9, 10, 11 and their presence in the lung and pleura7,9, 10, 11, 12, 13 are highly recommended for the interested reader.
