abstract

  • No evidence in the current study suggested that indeterminate pulmonary nodules less than 1 cm are associated with renal cell carcinoma progression, although large nodules significantly predicted metastatic disease. Patients with subcm indeterminate pulmonary nodules would be unlikely to benefit from extensive postoperative chest imaging surveillance, which should be reserved for patients with nodules greater than 1 cm.
