Metastases to and from the Lung

  • David H. Dail


Because metastastic neoplasms to the lung are the most common tumor found in the lung, this chapter concentrates on this problem. At the end of the chapter, a discussion of primary lung tumors and their own metastases is included, but for contrast and comparison they are mentioned throughout the discussion of secondary tumors arriving in the lung. In autopsy studies, the lungs are involved with metastases in 20%–54%1–6 of cases of extrapulmonary malignancies, and in 15%–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 and their presence in the lung and pleura7,9,10 are highly recommended for the interested reader.
