A 71-year-old man with a 100-pack-year smoking history had this chest X-ray during pre-op workup for lumbar laminectomy. On physical examination, he had a palpable mass of the right upper chest wall beneath the pectoralis major. He had had a right thoracotomy 17 years previously for benign pulmonary nodules.
