Acute Silicosis complications
Acute Silicosis

Complications could include:

  • Lung cancer is a cancer that originates in the lungs. Lung cancer often goes undetected in the early stages, since symptoms don't usually present themselves until the advanced stages of the disease.
  • A lobectomy is the surgical removal of a lobe of an organ. It most often refers to the removal of a section of a lung.
  • Oxygen therapy provides supplemental oxygen to people with breathing disorders.
  • Emphysema is a lung disease that, along with chronic bronchitis, represents a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Lack of oxygen may give skin and lips a bluish hue.
  • COPD symptoms are usually slow to develop and often don't appear until significant damage has occurred. Symptoms can come and go and may vary in intensity.
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is a lung condition usually caused by smoking. It makes breathing difficult, and wheezing, tightness in chest, and chest infections are common.
