Pulmonary tuberculosis, referred to as TB, is a bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, where the bacterial infection attacks lung function. It is a highly infectious disease that can spread when the infected person sneezes or coughs.
Bronchial asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways. Asthma is managed with medications to control inflammation and bronchodilators to relieve symptoms.
Pneumonia is an inflammatory lung infection that causes the alveoli (lungs' air sacs) to inflame and fill them with fluid or pus. It is a severe disease, and it can lead to several complications, like lung failure, sepsis, and lung abscess.
Upper respiratory infections
An upper respiratory infection affects the nasal passage and the throat, leading to the development of symptoms like the production of excess mucus and cough. The infection is usually spread through sneezing or coughing or when someone comes in contact with an infected person.
Emphysema is a form of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) where the inner walls of the lungs' alveoli sacs are damaged, which eventually causes them to rupture. It creates one larger space rather than several small ones and reduces the surface area for gas exchange.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition that causes thick and sticky mucus production in the lungs, digestive tract, and other body areas. It can lead to mucus build-up that can lead to blockage, damage, and infections in the affected organ.
Interstitial lung disease
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) refers to around 100 chronic lung disorders that cause scarring of the lung tissue and make it difficult for the lungs to get oxygen. This scarring is called pulmonary fibrosis, which makes it difficult for the lungs to expand and contract, leading to breathing difficulties.
A pleural effusion is an accumulation of fluid in the pleural space, the area between the lungs and the chest wall. It can result from various conditions, such as heart failure, infection, cancer, or inflammation.
Pulmonary hypertension (PH)
Pulmonary hypertension is characterized by high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries, which supply blood to the lungs. This increased pressure strains the heart and affects its function.

Stay away from asbestos exposure. Workers who handle insulation and other asbestos-containing materials run the danger of exposure, as do technicians who work on brakes and clutches in automobiles.
Adopt a balanced diet. A diet that is high in fruits and vegetables has been found in studies to help avoid lung disease.
Avoid breathing in dust or odours.
