Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation (CCAM)
A congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) is the most common type of fetal lung lesion. It appears as a benign cyst in the chest that can vary in size. If left untreated, fetal lung lesions can grow and cause complications or turn cancerous.
