Lung Diseases

Acute Bronchitis
Acute bronchitis is the inflammation of the bronchial tube that are the main airways in the lungs. The cause of acute bronchitis comes from a viral or bacterial infection. The symptoms of acute bronchitis include coughing, fever, and chest pain. It can be treated by using antibiotics or medicine.
Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD)
Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency is a genetic disorder that can cause liver or lung disease. The major aspect of the disorder is the low number of the type of protein, alpha-1 antitrypsin (A1AT), in the blood.
Asthma is an incurable illness that is caused by the inflammation and narrowing of the airways that makes breathing difficult. People with asthma experience a series of wheezing, chest pain, and coughing.
Atelectasis is a condition in which parts of the lung collapse. This leads to impairments in the respiratory functions such as reduced gas exchange since not enough oxygen enters the lungs. When a majority of the lungs is affected, it can lead to serious problems as minimal oxygen is delivered to the blood.
Bronchopneumonia is a type of pneumonia that involves the inflammation of the walls in the bronchial airways and the alveoli. It causes the alveoli to be filled with fluids and mucuses. The disease is caused by viral or bacterial infections in which the bacteria enters the lungs.
Chronic Bronchitis
A serious form of bronchitis that inflames the linings of the bronchial tubes that causes less air to enter and exit the lungs. This type of bronchitis produces a large amount of mucus that leads to frequent coughs and breathing difficulties.
Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is a lung tumor that involves uncontrolled cell growth in the lung tissues. The abnormal cells divide at a rapid rate to create tumors that become larger. It impedes the lung's ability to give oxygen to the bloodstream.
Lung Nodule
A lung nodule is a small, abnormal spot in the lungs that are spotted in X-rays. The size of the lung nodule is usually three centimeters or smaller. The large lung nodule that is larger than three centimeters is an indicator that it is cancerous.
Sarcoidosis is a disease that is caused by the growth of abnormal cells that inflames the organs including the lungs. The inflamed cells can damage lung tissues, which will hinder the lungs ability to give oxygen to the blood.
