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) adult BAC presents as a single or multiple consolidations (in early stages, it appears as a ground-glass opacity). SCC is more likely to cavitate.
