Predicting factors of ground-glass lung nodule for growth

Authors: Takatoshi Aoki


Adenocarcinoma accounts for more than 50% of lung malignancy. Most patients with early-stage adenocarcinoma have no symptom, and a lung nodule detected at radiologic examination is common their initial finding. Small lung adenocarcinomas have been increasingly detected, and this trend is anticipated to increase due to recent advances in diagnostic technologies along with the advent of low-dose CT screening for lung cancer (1).
