Lung cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the lungs. Lungs are two spongy organs in the chest that take in oxygen when we inhale and release carbon dioxide when we exhale. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide.

A cyst is a cavity filled with fluid. Lungs can have cysts like hydatid cyst, bronchogenic cyst, dermoid cyst or many other type of cysts. If left untreated, these cysts increase in size and can cause cough, blood in sputum, chest pain or fever. 

A pneumothorax occurs when air leaks into the space between your lung and chest wall. This air pushes on the outside of your lung and makes it collapse. Pneumothorax can be a complete lung collapse or a collapse of only a portion of the lung.

Bronchiectasis is a long-term condition where the airways of the lungs known as bronchi become abnormally widened, leading to a build-up of excess mucus that can make the lungs more vulnerable to infection.

Chest houses most vital structures of the body and in unfortunately the site of trauma in road accidents as well as stab and gun-shot injures. While some may be fatal on the spot many patients reach hospital in a critical state and need immediate treatment for injuries. 

Lung Nodule is a small round or oval-shaped growth in the lung. It may also be called a “spot in the lung”. Lung nodules are smaller than three centimeters (around 1.2 inches) in diameter.

Esophageal (food-pipe) cancer usually begins in the cells that line the inside of the esophagus. Esophageal cancer can occur anywhere along the esophagus. More men than women get esophageal cancer.
Esophageal cancer is the sixth most common cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Esophageal/oesophageal cancer usually presents with difficulty in swallowing, initially to solids and then liquids also.

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a relatively rare autoimmune disease that leads to fluctuating weakness of voluntary muscle groups throughout the body. The thymus gland plays a major role in the causation and onset of MG. Approximately 10 to 15 percent of MG patients develop a tumor of the thymus gland, known as thymoma. However, thymoma can develop without MG also. So, a patient may have MG, or Thymoma, or both.

Palmar Hyperhidrosis is abnormally excessive sweating that's not necessarily related to heat or exercise. The Patient may sweat so much that it soaks through the clothes or drips off the hands. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, this type of heavy sweating can cause social anxiety and embarrassment.

Posterior Mediastinal tumors are benign or cancerous growths that form in the back area of the chest that separates the lungs. This area, called the posterior mediastinum, is surrounded by the spine in back and the lungs on each side. These tumors can develop at any age although 30-50years is the commonest affected age group.

Thoracic surgery when performed using a small video camera in a patient's chest by making small incisions is termed Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS or commonly known as keyhole surgery). The small incisions made reduces the rate of infection entering into the patient’s body. Also, the rate of recovery is must faster as compared to the normal open surgery

Traditionally, thoracic surgery has been performed through a thoracotomy, which is a surgical incision made between the ribs. The incision is approximately 10-15 cm and often results in the need to cut or spread the ribs to get adequate visualization. Typical procedures performed via this approach include removal of the lung or a portion of the lung, esophagus, or chest wall tumors, and repairs of the esophagus, lung, or major blood vessels.

The surgical treatment of thymomas is termed as Thymectomy. The procedure has achieved massive success in the improvement of Myasthenia Gravia post thymectomy. Robotic Thymectomy has become an alternative approach to open surgery/video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. This procedure uses Da Vinci Technology to perform surgeries.
