Tumors that arise in the trachea (called primary tracheal tumors) and bronchi are very rare.
Patients complain of cough, blood in cough, difficulty in breathing or wheezing. These tumors are often misdiagnosed as Asthma and treated accordingly, delaying the diagnosis.
"Complete removal of tumor with its base" (part of wind pipe wall from where the tumor had arisen) can cure these patients. This "complex surgery" has been our special area of expertise for over a decade and we have performed all kind of resections for this disease.
Bronchial Carcinoid represents one to five per cent of all lung tumours. Patients present with cough, blood in sputum and breathlessness. The diagnosis is confirmed by CT Scans or DOTATOC PET Scan. Our team has one of the largest experiences in treating these patients which has been reported in over 10 papers in International Journals.
Wind pipe can be injured in accidents. This leads to collapse of that side of lung. This requires a complex operation to rejoin the wind pipe. Our unit has been performing these complex operations routinely for over a decade with excellent outcome.
