Your lungs are always hard at work. These vital organs expand and contract thousands of times per day, releasing carbon dioxide and refreshing the body with oxygen. Lung disease is a term that encompasses a variety of conditions affecting the lungs. The various parts of the lung, from the airways and the air sacs to the interstitium and pleura linings and even the blood vessels, can all succumb to disease or dysfunction. Common symptoms of lung disease include chronic coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pain or tightness, abnormal mucus production, and weakness and fatigue after regular physical activity. The causes of lung disease vary but can include smoking, exposure to asbestos or air pollutants, bacterial infection, flu, and heart disease.
