Lung lesions

Lung lesions require careful investigation and surgical management depending on the type of pathology.

Lesions may involve the lung directly or may affect the pleural cavity which may necessitate surgical management. Lesions involving the lungs or the pleural cavity for which surgical management can be offered are:

  • Bronchogenic cysts
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Pulmonary sequestration
  • Cystic pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM)
  • Lobar emphysema
  • Empyema
  • Pneumothorax
