Pancoast tumor also called superior sulcus tumor, is a type of cancer mainly consisting of non-small cell cancer, which develops in the apical region of the lung and may grow and compress nearby structures. Commonly compressed structures include the recurrent laryngeal nerve, which results in a hoarse voice; the superior cervical ganglion, resulting in Horner's syndrome; and the superior vena cava, resulting in superior vena cava syndrome. Treatment for Pancoast tumors typically involves surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy.
