A growth rate analysis of lung metastases of benign giant cell tumor (GCT) of bone, histologically indistinguishable from the primary benign tumor, is presented. The doubling time (DT) was 186 days in the first 13 months of growth, and 465 days in the last 4 months. These DTs are much longer than DT of lung metastases of any other tumors, and have a good correlation with a long survival time. Backward extrapolation showed that the lung metastases began to develop years before the primary tumor… CONTINUE READING
