Superficial endobronchial carcinoma
A superficial endobronchial lung cancer may be defined as a bronchogenic tumor of any size with its invasive component limited to the bronchial wall. It may extend into the proximal bronchus and is often classified as T1 at TNM staging. It is one of the causes of more focal bronchial wall thickening.
