William Krimsky, MD, right, interventional pulmonologist, consults a patient.
Lung disease is any problem in the lungs that prevents them from functioning properly. The condition may be the result of a narrowing or blockage of the airways, tissue scarring or inflammation, or problems with blood vessels. Tumors can also result from smoking or long-term exposure to smoke or other harmful substances.
