Carcinoid Lung Tumor Topic Guide
Carcinoid Lung Tumor: Carcinoid lung tumors are an uncommon group of lung tumors. A carcinoid lung tumor can not be classified as benign or malignant. They are often referred to as "midway" tumors, or "cancers in slow motion." Common symptoms of a carcinoid lung tumor include coughing (sometimes with blood), shortness of breath, fever, chest pain, and more. Treatment for a carcinoid lung tumor in general is surgery.
