Metastasis: Consolidation 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.|
|Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma||Uncommon||bronchoalveolar metastases appear as consolidation, while classical lung cancers will just appear as nodules (or lymphangiitic spread)|
|Hodgkin's Lymphoma||Rare||can also invade locally from the hilum or mediastinum. Most common pattern is nodules.|
