Hello. Thank you for posting.

Lung disease is any problem in the lungs that prevents the lungs from working properly. There are three main types of lung disease, airway diseases, lung tissue diseases, and lung circulation diseases.

The most common lung diseases include:

Collapse of part or all of the lung (pneumothorax or atelectasis)
Swelling and inflammation in the main passages (bronchial tubes) that carry air to the lungs (bronchitis)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
Lung cancer
Lung infection (pneumonia)
Abnormal buildup of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema)
Blocked lung artery (pulmonary embolus)

You will need to discuss treatment options with your doctor based on what is causing your lung disease, specifically.
