Bronchial Adenoma (cont.)

Outlook

Following surgical resection (removal), the overall 5-year survival rate for people with bronchial adenoma is 96%. Long-term follow-up studies in most series report little evidence of local recurrence or distant metastases following surgical removal of bronchial adenoma. However, a few reports exist of local recurrence or distant metastases following adequate resection.

Overall, the long-term prognosis for people with bronchial adenoma is excellent; therefore, limited resection should be used whenever possible.
