Re: Question about Bronchoscopy

When they do the Broncoscopy they can try and get a sample. They usually use a small brush to try and scrape cells from it. When they tried that with me it started bleeding profusely and had to stop and were not able to get a sample. I did not know what kind of cancer I had until the surgeon removed my right middle lobe and it was sent to the lab for biopsy.
