Could be metastatic: Lesions of lung associated with oral cancer is not that uncommon. Higher possibility of such disease in lung would correlate better if cervical nodes had been present initially. Bx is essential to initiate therapy if needed. A PET/CAT could indicate possibility of lung mets. Thorascopic bx would be helpful for deciding on definitive management.
