Bronchial Adenoma Treatment
If a person has been diagnosed with bronchial adenoma, the tumor is removed through bronchoscopic surgery; open lung surgery; or video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), a form of minimally invasive surgery.
Bronchoscopic surgery may be performed if the tumor is small and limited to the airways. In this surgery, the tumor may not be completely removed. Also, the chances of profuse bleeding are higher. Therefore, bronchoscopic surgery for tumor removal is only recommended in people who cannot undergo open lung surgery or VATS because of other health conditions.
