Follow up: Calcified Lymph Node Invading Lung
I recently posted a question about having a calcified lymph node that has pushed into my right middle lobe. The response was that resection is the necessary treatment. Can this surgery be done arthroscopically or does it have to be done traditionally by making a large incision?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. This can be done thoracoscopically or with a small thoracic incision.
