Pulmonary sclerosing pneumocytoma (PSP) is a rare benign lung tumor that typically doesn’t show symptoms, but can cause breathing difficulties if it grows large. These tumors are often found accidentally because they grow slowly, don’t cause symptoms, have distinct features on imaging, and imaging techniques are used more frequently. Despite being non-cancerous, PSP can resemble malignant tumors in imaging and tissue examination, potentially leading to incorrect diagnosis and unnecessary surgery. This case report aims to detail a case where PSP was incidentally discovered during a medical assessment for a fibroadenoma in the chest region.
