Bronchogenic Cyst

Common Name(s)

Bronchogenic Cyst

Bronchogenic Cyst is a type of growth typically located in the chest area near the trachea, where the wind-pipe, or trachea, branches off to the two lungs. Depending on the size of the growth, surrounding organs, such as the lungs, trachea, and food-pipe (esophagus), can be affected, leading to problems with swallowing or breathing. Doctors can diagnose this defect early in infancy, as the growth may be apparent at birth, although it may not be externally visible until early adulthood. Treatment is developed on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs on the patient. Doctors may recommend surgery to remove the growth.
