Answer

Patients with advanced NSCLC should be evaluated for the presence of distant metastases. Patients with solitary brain lesions may benefit from a surgical resection, or stereotactic radiosurgery, if their primary disease is well controlled. Isolated adrenal masses should be resected, since many adrenal masses are benign and even oligometastatic adrenal disease can occasionally be well controlled.
