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