Extract

Metastatic spread to the lungs from other than bronchopulmonary tumors is a common clinical problem. The incidence of lung metastases is estimated to from 20 to 50% in nonpulmonary primary tumors. This is thought to be because of the role of the lungs as the primary capillary filter of the drainage of most organs. Tumors more likely to give lung metastases are breast, renal, GI, thyroid, germ cell, carcinomas, as well as sarcomas and malignant melanomas.12
