L Mainstem endobronchial lesion... did you see this originally on the CXR. If so, wow! Credit to you and your radiologist.

I'm with ML: easy to spot it on the CT but I would probably have missed it on the CXR.
What did the bronch show?

Bronch showed an endobronchial lesion well demarcated with nice smooth borders.
path showed a neoplasm arranged in a nesting and trabecular pattern and the immunohistochemical stains were positive for synaptophysin and chromogranin.
