Some time ago, an old lady who was less than 70 years old reviewed her lung nodules , found to be slightly larger than before. Her son is a fan of my self-media. Seeing that I often talk about pulmonary nodules, he found me to watch the film. The old lady’s pulmonary nodule was in the lower lobe of the right lung, with a diameter of 10 mm and few solid components. There was a small vacuole at the edge of the pulmonary nodule, which looked like a typical lung cancer. Surgical resection was recommended. After discussing with my family, I decided to have the operation here. I surgically removed this nodule, and the pathology showed that it was a microinvasive lung adenocarcinoma, which was only a very early stage lung cancer.
