Warning signs of lungs diseases

Your organs need oxygen-rich blood to work well. A low oxygen level in the blood can cause shortness of breath and air hunger (the feeling that you can't breathe in enough air). Having too much carbon dioxide in your blood can also harm your organs. It can cause rapid breathing and confusion. 

Don't ignore the warning signs of lung diseases:

Neither shortness of breath is a normal part of aging nor persistent cough or excess mucus. Given below are early signs of lung disease,. If you experience any of the following warning signs, please visit our Pulmonology clinic. An earlier diagnosis can help you to better manage the disease.



Chronic cough : A cough that you have had for more than a month or longer is considered chronic. This is an important early symptom of a respiratory disease.

Shortness of breath : It is normal to experience shortness of breath after little or no exertion. Difficulty in breathing is an important warning sign of repiratory (lungs) disease.

Chronic mucus production : Mucus, also called sputum or phlegm, is produced by the airways as a defense against infection or irritants. If you have excess mucus production that lasts a week or longer, this could be caused by a lung infection or lung disease lsuch as COPD or asthma.

Wheezing : Noisy breathing or wheezing is a sign that your airways are blocked or have become too narrow. 

Coughing up blood : Coughing up blood is a serious sign of lung disease; a cough that makes you tired or light headed or causes chest or stomach pain is also a reason to see pulmonologist.

Chest pain : Unexplained chest pain that lasts for a month or more is also a warning sign of lung disease.
