What Are The Characteristics Of Lung Disease?
What are the characteristics of all lung diseases?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are dozens, maybe even hundreds of lung diseases that have been recorded during human history. Starting from those caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, the immune system, genetics, radiation, injury or impact, pollution, cigarette smoke, the entry of foreign objects, allergies, and so forth. The name of the disease also varies, ranging from tuberculosis, pneumonia, bronchitis, atelectasis, emphysema, pulmonary edema, to various types of cancers that can attack the lungs and respiratory organs. All of these diseases can have their respective characteristics so it is not possible to mention the characteristics of all these diseases.
Another case when you ask what can be a sign of lung disease, or what signs and symptoms can increase suspicion of abnormalities in the lungs if it is experienced by someone. Among these characteristics are coughing, shortness of breath, sputum discharge, coughing up blood, and chest pain. But even this has to be explored again. Because people who are short of breath, can occur because there is indeed a disorder in the lungs, but it could also be due to stomach acid disease, lack of red blood cells, or psychological disorders. Similar to chest pain, it could be due to the lungs, but it could also be due to the stomach or heart.
Therefore it is indeed not appropriate to generalize too much like that. In your question, in our opinion we must again evaluate the reason you asked it. If your goal is to study disease, this is not the right approach because getting to know the disease is not as simple as memorizing the symptoms. If your goal is to have a family or acquaintance affected by a particular disease, you should return it to the doctor who treats it directly. So, hopefully answering your question.
