Interventional Radiology

Rad: So what are you seeing? Lung mass. Spiculated. Suspicious.

Me: I'm looking. There's no frank cancer here.

Rad: So what are you telling me? It's unfrank cancer?

Me: No. It's not Frank cancer. It's Joe cancer. No, kidding. It's not cancer. There is inflammation. Get cultures.

Next morning at the scope, looking at the core. It's cancer. Well differentiated. Bronchioloalveolar type. Lepidic. But definitely invasive. Stains support pulmonary origin. Frank cancer.
