Metastasis: Cavitary Lung Parenchyma Lesion
Cancers are sorted by a combination of rarity, overall frequency of metastases, and predilection for this site.
|Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma||(Primary Tumor)||BAC presents as a single or multiple consolidations (in early stages, it appears as a ground-glass opacity). SCC is more likely to cavitate.|
|Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck||Common||by far, the most common site of metastasis|
|Cervical Cancer||Uncommon||SCC lung metastases can cavitate|
