Clinical Information
  • A non-neoplastic or neoplastic condition affecting the lung. Representative examples of non-neoplastic conditions include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and pneumonia. Representative examples of neoplastic conditions include benign processes (e.g., respiratory papilloma) and malignant processes (e.g., lung carcinoma and metastatic cancer to the lung).
  • Deviation from or interruption of the normal structure or function of the lung or lungs.
  • Pathological processes involving any part of the lung.
  • When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. Millions of people in the United States Have lung disease. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the United States.the term lung disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems. Some lung diseases can lead to respiratory failure. dept. Of health and human services office on women's health
