1 Answer:

Hello Siti, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

First of all I want to confirm first, what do you mean by thickening of the lung is a thickening of the pleura (lining of the lung)?

Thickening of the pleura can occur for several reasons, including:

The presence of chronic inflammation of the pleura, for example due to tuberculosis infection in the pleura, recurrent pneumothorax pleural infection that causes empyema (pus in the pleura) further complications of hemothorax (blood in the pleura) exposure to asbestos or malignant silicosis / cancer of the pleura, it could be cancer primary (cancer originating from the pleura) or metastasis (cancer from other places that spread to the pleura) Thickening of the pleura does not always have to be treated with drugs or surgery. Pleural thickening can be treated with surgery if indeed the pleural thickening is so severe that it causes severe breathing problems or there is cancer of the pleura. Some things that can be suggested to reduce shortness of breath in pleural thickening include:

avoid smoking and exposure to cigarette smoke avoid exposure to substances that damage the lungs including air pollution, asbestos, silica keep physically active in accordance with your ability to perform pulmonary rehabilitation (you can consult your pulmonologist for this therapy further) drinking medicines given by your doctor according to the dosage and recommendation given.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
