Abstract

History: Patient presents with 3 weeks of fatigue, night sweats, productive cough with 5–6 teaspoons of blood-tinged sputum per day, and dyspnea on exertion. Chest X-ray found large right-sided chest mass. Patient was admitted to hospital with hemoptysis. Chest CT showed large paratracheal mass invading the right main stem bronchus and trachea. Biopsy of the mass was performed, and pathology revealed non-small-cell lung cancer.
