I'm not sure I understand your question.  Are you having problems with the
processing you are doing now?  If you are what problems are you having?
Are you just starting to process lung?

I always processed lung tissue the same as routine.  Fixation in 10% NBF.
Just make sure it is fixed thoroughly.  This included ressections and
biopsy.  Also, avoid large and thick tissue sections.  Residents and some
pathologists have the tendency to think larger is better.
