I want to ask .. r nmy name is out of lung X-ray … r nAnd he said there is a liquid that needs to be sucked … r nAnd I want to ask if it’s a sign of lung cancer? and is it completely curable? Thank you 🙏🏻
Fluid in the lungs is often used to describe a medical condition called pleural effusion and / or pulmonary edema. The two medical conditions are different but they both represent the presence of fluid in the lungs.
Both of these medical conditions can be caused by a variety of causative factors, and although lung cancer can have similar complaints, Irene's mother must be examined further to ascertain whether the presence of fluid in the lung is really due to cancer or due to other factors.
Pleural effusion is a condition in which the lining of the lungs called the pleura is filled with fluid, as a result if the amount of fluid in the pleural cavity increases in number, the movement of the lungs during breathing becomes reduced, resulting in a feeling of tightness, coughing, body aches, coughing, and even become feverish. The causes of pleural effusion are: pneumonia, tuberculosis, pulmonary embolism, liver disorders, heart problems, kidney disorders, lung cancer.
While pulmonary edema is a buildup of fluid in the alveoli (air sacs of the lungs), as a result inhaled oxygen cannot be absorbed properly to enter the bloodstream as a result the patient will often feel tired quickly and even in activity and lying down even though it may feel tightness. The causes of pulmonary edema are: Heart disorders (coronary heart disease, cardiomyopathy, heart valve disease), hypertension, infections, etc.
Therefore, Irene's mother was advised to check her back to a pulmonologist, so that further evaluation could be carried out on what condition was at the root of the problem. Doctors need to conduct further question and answer sessions to dig up information related to their medical history, and also conduct basic health checks and even further medical examinations if needed to get the information needed
