  • Most Pulmonary Mucous Gland Adenomas are asymptomatic, meaning that generally no signs and symptoms may be noted.In some, it can cause signs and symptoms such as blood in cough, wheezing, and difficulty in breathing
  • Due to this reason (most are asymptomatic tumors), a majority of them are often diagnosed incidentally, while a diagnostic work-up is being performed for other medical conditions
