Abstract

The solitary pulmonary nodule frequently presents a diagnostic dilemma to the physician and the patient. Is it malignant or benign? Should it be observed, biopsied, or removed? Much has been learned through surgical, biopsy, and radiographic studies to help answer these questions. We review what is known about the solitary nodule and discuss the clinical approach to its evaluation.
