Patients Stories


Some of the common respiratory diseases are:

  • Asthma: It is a chronic inflammatory condition that results in breathing problems due to the narrowing of the airway or blockage due to the accumulation of mucus.
  • Chronic obstructive lung disease: It comprises two primary types of lung diseases, i.e., chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
  • Cystic fibrosis: It is a genetic condition that involves the formation of thick mucus. The thick mucus causes digestive and breathing problems.
  • Bronchitis: This condition involves inflammation of the windpipe. The patients may have acute or chronic bronchitis.
  • Tuberculosis: It is a bacterial disease that affects the lungs. Patients with this condition experience chronic coughs and night sweats.
  • Emphysema: It is a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in which the alveoli lose their elasticity.
  • Pneumonia: This condition is caused by bacteria, viruses, or other pathogenic organisms. The alveoli of the patient are filled with pus or fluid.
  • Lung cancer: It involves uncontrolled cell growth and division in the lungs. Lung cancer may be primary (originates within the lungs) or metastatic (spreads from another organ to the lungs).

Some of the common symptoms of respiratory diseases are:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Blood in cough
  • Chest pain
