In the follow up period of extrapulmonary malignancies, detection of a pulmonary nodule should not be always considered as a metastatic lesion. It could also be another simultaneous primary lung malignancy. Determining the etiology of the new lesion is important in order to decide the therapeutic management and prognosis.
