Lots of infections and diseases can cause damage to your lung tissue that affects your ability to breathe. When you cannot breathe well, the rest of your body suffers due to a lack of oxygen. That’s why it’s so important to find treatments that can help heal any damage that these conditions cause.

Many minor lung conditions are treatable with some home remedies, rest and over-the-counter medications. However, chronic lung diseases, such as COPD or pneumoconiosis, require professional assistance for treatment.

Treating serious lung diseases

Many lung diseases are not curable and grow worse over time. Much of the damage caused by these chronic lung diseases comes in the form of inflammation, which creates scar tissue. This scar tissue inhibits your ability to breathe and cannot be removed. There are treatments, though, that can help reduce inflammation and open up your airways more to help you breathe.

Treatments vary depending on the nature of your lung disease, how quickly it was diagnosed, age, weight, smoking history and medical history. Many lung disease treatments include:

  • Bronchodilators
  • Antibiotics
  • Supplemental oxygen
  • Pulmonary therapy
  • Corticosteroids

One important treatment that can prevent the development of many lung diseases, as well as slowing progressive lung disease, is quitting smoking. Smoking is the leading cause of lung disease. You can significantly reduce your chances of developing a lung disease if you quit smoking now.

Extreme cases of lung disease may require surgery for treatment. A lung transplant is a risky surgery that usually has a long waiting list. If your lung disease has caused so much damage that surgery is the only option, talk to your doctor about qualifications.
