Abstract

Metastatic, gender-related, nonpulmonary malignancy can exhibit different patterns of tumor spread and different natural histories. The pulmonologist often is involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with pulmonary metasteses; and a thorough understanding of the patterns of metastasis from these cancers can help to guide appropriate work-up and therapy. In the case of solitary pulmonary metastases, a surgical approach may not be unreasonable based on current clinical evidence. Knowledge of the clinical spectrum of these diseases, together with their unique molecular biology, may improve the clinical care of patients.
