Image finding: Hilar mass





COMMENTS

Hilar mass (in melanoma). Not uncommonly melanoma may seed metastases to the mediastinum and lungs. The X-ray alone may have difficulty discriminating the boundaries of normal and abnormal tissues.

Further evaluation often requires a tomographic technique such as CT or MRI.
