I am going to give a presentation of a 64-year-old man.
He has no significant past medical history. On an annual health check-up, he was told that he had an abnormal tumor shadow in the chest X-ray and visited a local hospital, where he was advised to visit our hospital to take further examinations.
He had an episode of dyspnea on exertion and occasional cough and he realized that the amount of sputum had increased lately.
The chest CT revealed large tumor shadow in the left upper lobe of the lung and the PET/CT scan showed metastasis to the ipsilateral lymph nodes and contralateral mediastinal lymph nodes.
We did CT-guided percutaneous lung biopsy and the result of the biopsy was squamous cell carcinoma. The final diagnosis was Stage IIIC squamous cell lung cancer.
He was admitted in order to start radiochemotherapy from 19th July.
