The goal of the management of solitary pulmonary nodules is to provide early diagnosis and treatment for patients with malignant nodules and decrease morbidity for patients with benign nodules. A successful strategy depends on accurate assessment of the probability of malignant nodules based on the clinical and radiographic data and performing an appropriate management strategy.
