The features of about 100 benign nodules are compared with the findings in the same number of peripheral stage I lung carcinomas. There were, indeed, clinical differences between both groups, but the isolated case could practically never be designated malignant or benign with certainty. We thus conclude that each pulmonary nodule has to be resected on the assumption of malignancy without delay.
