COPD obstructs breathing and reduces life quality; narrows the airways, causes coughing and sputum formation, and may cause cut of breath even when the person is moving a little. Exposure to chemicals, air pollution and cigarette can lead to COP disease.
Rapid and uncontrolled proliferation of lung cells, resulting in tumor formation in the lung, is called lung cancer.

Surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and radiation therapy are the methods used during the treatment of lung cancer.

Asthma, COPD and bronchiectasis can be given as examples of obstructive pulmonary diseases that can cause lung function disorders and chronic consequences. Comprehensive treatments are used to increase life quality of patients, to cure respiratory problems and to decrease the symptoms of illness.
Chronic coughs that last for about three weeks should not be neglected. This situation reduces the quality of life, causes sleep problems and fatigue. The causes of chronic cough, which usually manifest as a sign of a serious problem, should be identified and treated.

Respiratory function tests are used to determine factors that cause shortness of breath, find out obstructive pathologies and detect respiratory problems. Thus, the missing factors are eliminated in the diagnosis of diseases.
