Bronchial Adenoma

Overview

A Bronchial Adenoma is a tumor of large bronchi or trachea that results in obstruction of the airways. Although, bronchial adenoma is referred to benign tumor of the airways, it is commonly misapplied to other conditions related to malignant tumors. These tumors slowly and steadily grow in size and rarely spread to other parts of the body. Some of the alternative names of the condition are Cancer-bronchial adenoma, adenocarcinoma of the bronchus, mucous gland adenoma, bronchial carcinoid tumors and bronchial gland tumors.

Treatments
Open lung Surgery Modern Medicine

The tumor of bronchial adenoma is removed through surgery like open lung surgery, bronchoscopic surgery, VATS (video-assisted thoracic surgery) etc. The bronchoscopic surgery is performed in the case if the tumor is small in size and has not spread in other body’s organs. It is important to disclose the fact that even through the surgery, the tumor does not get removed completely. Hence, the surgery is recommended only for those people who are not in the position to undertake VATS or open lung surgery.
