We investigated the pathological outcome of lung resections undertaken for solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) 0.05). An appreciation of cancer risk is crucial to the informed counselling and intelligent management of patients presenting with lung masses. In this cohort 78% of the SPNs proved to be malignant, a higher figure than other workers have previously been described.
