Overview

Biopsy is helpful in the diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the lung.[1]

Biopsy

  • Biopsy is helpful in the diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the lung.
  • During a biopsy, tissues or cells are removed from the body so they can be tested in a laboratory. The pathology report from the laboratory will confirm whether or not cancer cells are present in the sample. The biopsies that could be used for lung cancer are:[1]
  • The doctor may use a CT scan to guide FNA to remove a small amount of tissue from a suspected lung tumour or from a lymph node in the chest.
  • FNA may also be done during bronchoscopy, along with endobronchial ultrasound, to take samples of lymph nodes around the trachea and the bronchi.
  • Thoracentesis may be done to remove fluid from around the lungs to see if it contains cancer cells.
