Lung cancer - huge

Case contributed by Assoc Prof Frank Gaillard

Chest radiographs

Chest x-ray demonstrates a large left sided midzone mass, with lobulated margins. There is no convincing extension beyond the chest wall and the remainder of the chest, other than a degree of hyperinflation, appears unremarkable. 


CT confirms the findings. Only a few small mediastinal nodes are present, and no other parenchymal mass is identified. 

Case Discussion

Features are consistent with the subsequently histology proven bronchogenic carcinoma
