Air taken from the mouth or nose reaches the lungs via the windpipe. Benign or malignant tumors can occur in this airway. However, these tumors can sometimes be seen around the windpipe rather than in it. This situation can compress the trachea from the outside. Tumor, both inside and outside, may threaten the life of the patient by causing narrowing of the trachea.
Tracheal tumors must be removed with an attempt. Otherwise, the patient may not be able to breathe. Removal of the tumor can either be partial or complete removal of the tumor through a bronchoscope, depending on the condition of the patient and the tumor, or in the form of complete removal of the tumor airway and reattachment of the trachea. In some cases, it is necessary to place a stent in the trachea.
