    What Is a Bronchial Adenoma?

    What to Expect

    Your treatment might put you into remission. This means your doctors can't find any cancer left in your body and you have no symptoms.

    Bronchial adenomas can come back even after they are treated. This is called a recurrence. You'll see your doctor for regular checkups, blood tests, and scans to check for signs of cancer. If your cancer does return, your doctor will try the same treatments, or new treatments to stop its spread.

    Support

    Treatment for bronchial adenoma can be stressful. It's important to talk openly about your feelings with your doctors, nurses, and the other members of your treatment team. A therapist, psychologist, or counselor can help you get through some of the concerns and emotions you may feel.

    You may also want to look for a support group for other people with this condition. It helps to be able to talk with people who know what you’re going through, because they know what it’s like and can relate to you.
