Chest Wall Tumors

  • T. Treasure
Part of the UICC Current Treatment of Cancer book series (1360)


The skin and each of the connective tissues of the chest wall may develop malignant disease, each appropriate to the particular tissue. Treatment is as for any other area, and it is only when surgical management results in a defect or impairment of the mechanics of the chest wall that this becomes a specialist chest problem. The tumors that particularly involve the thoracic surgeon are, therefore, primary growths of the ribs and sternum.
