Airway tumor

Also known as: Bronchial tumor
Bronchial tumors are slow-growing cancers in the trachea or in the large bronchi, the large airways of the lung. Symptoms include cough and spitting up blood, and can sometimes be confused with asthma symptoms such as wheezing, resulting in delayed diagnosis. Primary treatment is surgery to remove the tumor and lymph nodes and vessels where cancer may spread.
