Pulmonology & its Treatment

Pulmonology is the area of medicine Using minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat lung cancer and other serious conditions provides patients an improved quality of life.

When a patient experiences symptoms that cause discomfort, such as shortness of breath, coughing, or chest pain, it could be an indication of a more serious condition such as lung cancer or a disease of the respiratory system. Many people with lung cancer will accumulate pleural effusion (excess fluid around the lungs), which may cause pain, shortness of breath and other complications. It is estimated that 30 percent of lung cancers lead to some obstruction of the airway, causing symptoms such as wheezing, respiratory failure and uncontrolled cough.
