Lung cyst removal surgery involves the removal of lung sacs that are filled with air and fluid that is caused by many reasons, for example, hydatid cyst of lungs, benign or malignant tumors involving lung. This procedure is performed to prevent lung collapse. Chest radiograph and CT scans are done to estimate the extent and size of the cysts. The affected cysts are removed through thoracotomy surgery in which the place and size of the incision depends on the location and size of the cysts.
