Colon cancer with lung metastases
53 year old man complained of shortness of breath. He is a known case of colon cancer. Surgery was done 3 years ago. His chest x-ray showed a loculated effusion (fluid in the fissure - red arrow) and a 1cm nodule (yellow arrow). The fluid is most likely a malignant effusion and the nodule is most likely lung metastases from his colon cancer.
