(I bless my PCP for ordering that test, otherwise the lung nodule would not have been found till way later....possibly too late). Imagine my shock when scan showed small nodule in upper right lobe when they were tryin...

This is my first time being diagnosed with pneumonia and don't know what to expect.  I could stay in bed and sleep or should  I?  Having trouble coughing that mucus up.  Trying to drink plenty of water and hopefully the z-pack will kick in on the infection.  My OS2 drops to the mid 70's when I get up and it takes a good while to get it back above 90.  Wish the...

I recently had surgery on 2/25/14 for adenocarcinoma stage 1A.  Right upper lobe lobectomy.  Was feeling good but now getting nerve pain from nerve endings growing back.  And the numbness is driving me crazy. What relief is best?

Keep these helpful hints from the American Lung Association in mind as you enjoy the budding new season.

Judy Weimer might raise some eyebrows when she says, “Lucy and Ethel gave me a new lease on life.” But she’s not referring to the old, “I Love Lucy” show. “Lucy” and “Ethel” are the names she’s given to the healthy new lungs she received in a double-transplant four years ago. And it’s because of these new lungs that Judy joined other American Lung Association volunteers and advocates to fight fo...

It may be April 1 but this is no joke: e-cigarette companies are using marketing tactics straight out of Big Tobacco’s playbook, including cartoon characters, bright colors and flavors such as grape bubblegum and Atomic Fireball. That’s why today the American Lung Association and our partners sent this letter - http://bit.ly/1gXVX1Z - to President Obama. It’s past time for the Food & Drug A...
