Answer

As represented in the series of Koss et al, 90% of patients with pseudomesotheliomatous lung adenocarcinoma are male, with a mean age of 63 years. Nearly all patients have symptomatic pleural effusion and/or chest wall invasion. The most frequent symptoms are chest pain, dyspnea, cough, and weight loss.
