Understanding Pulmonary Disease
Pulmonary disease refers to a broad range of conditions affecting the respiratory system, including the lungs and associated structures. Such conditions can significantly impact your daily life, breathing patterns, and overall well-being. Patel Medical Center is committed to helping individuals understand the different types of pulmonary diseases and their implications.
Types of Pulmonary Diseases
There are several types of pulmonary diseases, each with its own set of causes, symptoms, and treatment approaches:
- Asthma: A chronic condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to recurring episodes of wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath.
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD): A progressive lung disease that obstructs airflow, making it difficult to breathe. COPD typically includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
- Lung Cancer: A malignant tumor that starts in the lungs, often caused by long-term exposure to harmful substances such as cigarette smoke.
- Pneumonia: An infection that inflames air sacs in one or both lungs, causing cough, fever, chest pain, and difficulty breathing.
- Pulmonary Fibrosis: A condition characterized by the scarring and thickening of lung tissues, leading to reduced lung function and difficulty breathing.
