Lung cancer is the progressive growth of malignant cells in this vital organ, causing problems in other lung structures, such as the bronchi. It Lung cancer is the progressive growth of malignant cells in this vital organ, causing problems in other lung structures, such as the bronchi. It is diagnosed in a very high percentage among the smoking population and almost always to present an excess of cough, which may be associated with coughing. The presence of a primary tumor can be characterized by dyspnea or shortness of breath, hemoptysis or bloody sputum, and other less common symptoms, such as chest pain, ringing in the side of the chest, and weight loss hoarseness. There are, however, other conditions that could suggest the spread of the cancer to other organs (metastasis). The diagnostic examination is to conduct a series of tests such as chest X-ray, CT (scan) of the chest and abdomen, respiratory function tests (spirometry), blood tests, and some form of biopsy (bronchoscopy, CT-guided percutaneous puncture, VATS, and toratocomía). The treatment to be applied depend on the stage of the cancer extension and the type and size of the tumor is found. According to each case, the treatment will be surgery to remove the tumor, chemotherapy or radiotherapy, or a combination of all. ...

Within the term mediastinal tumors are grouped a number of cystic lesions and tumors that originate in different tissues and organs mediastinal o Within the term mediastinal tumors are grouped a number of cystic lesions and tumors that originate in different tissues and organs mediastinal or extramediastinales. The most common mediastinal tumors are thymomas, lymphomas, intrathoracic goiters, neurofibromas and teratomas. About a third of mediastinal tumors are asymptomatic. While the presence of symptoms is not synonymous with malignancy, there is evidence that malignant lesions are most frequently symptomatic. For malignant tumors proper extension study and an evaluation of surgical indication, which often must be preceded or followed by other therapeutic means (chemotherapy and radiotherapy) were performed. ...

Infectious diseases (tuberculosis)
Pleural effusion is an accumulation of fluid between the layers of tissue that line the lungs and chest cavity. The body produces pleural fluid in small amounts to lubricate the surfaces of the pleura, the thin tissue that lines the chest cavity and surrounds the lungs. A pleural effusion is an abnormal collection of this fluid. They can be of two types. Transudative pleural effusions are caused by fluid leaking into the pleural space, which is caused by high pressure in the blood vessels or low protein content in the blood. The most common cause is congestive heart failure. Exudative effusions are caused by blocked blood vessels or lymph vessels, inflammation, lung injury and tumors. The goal of treatment is to remove the liquid, it becomes evtiar to accumulate and determine the cause of accumulation. The removal of fluid (thoracentesis) can be performed if there is a lot of this and is causing pressure in the chest, shortness of breath or other breathing problems, such as low oxygen levels. Removing the fluid allows the lung to expand, making breathing easier. ...
Pulmonary emphysema is an obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) characterized by curative treatment without destroying the walls of the alveoli (the branches of the lungs where the exchange of oxygen between the inspired air and the blood is performed), which causes a decrease respiratory function and progressive lung destruction. Its main manifestations are shortness of breath shortness of breath (especially when you're active and exercise is done) and cough. Among the most common causes of emphysema are: consumption of snuff extended in time; environmental and occupational factors, such as exposure to chemicals or toxic gas emissions; the elderly, especially in the male, and in the case of a history of chronic bronchitis, asthma and deficiency of a protein called alpha-1antritipsina (responsible for protecting the lungs from inflammation caused by infections or inhalations). Medical treatment is palliative and includes support for smoking cessation, bronchodilators, antibiotics, oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation exercises, lung volume reduction by surgery, and lung transplantation. ...
