  • Absencs of growth over 2 years suggest benign mass
  • Hamartoma can increase in size, as well as granulomas, low grade adenocarcinoma, mets
  • Decrease in size is benign
  • <30 year="" old="" span="">

Work-up includes

  • CT: Enhancement>20, means high vascularity suggest malignancy. < 15more likely benign
  • Oservation, depending on age of patient, size of lesions, and risk factors (smoking, environmental)
