Not all Growing Masses are Tumors – Aspergilloma – Fungal Ball in Cavity

Not all Growing Masses are Tumors
This 32 years old with a past history of treated tuberculosis presented with hemoptysis and a mass in the right upper lobe. A radiograph done 3 years ago shows a smaller mass. The CT scan shows soft tissue within a cavity with an air-crescent, the nodule showing mobility on the prone image. The radiographs do show the crescent as well. This is a typical growing fungal ball (Aspergilloma)
