Pancoast Tumor Overview
Pancoast tumors are tumors that form at the extreme apex (very top) of either the right or left lung in the superior sulcus (a shallow furrow on the surface of the lung). Pancoast tumors are a subset of lung cancers that invade the top of the chest wall. Because of their location in the apex of the lung, they invade adjoining tissue.
