Lung diseases are some of the most common medical conditions in the world. Tens of millions of people have lung disease in the U.S. alone. Smoking, infections, and genes cause most lung diseases. Asthma, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), bronchitis, and cystic fibrosis are common lung diseases.
Treatments for lung and breathing disorders will depend on the severity and sometimes root cause of the disease. Your doctor will work with you to develop a treatment plan for you.
