Lung cancer is something that we can help to diagnose and treat at Pulmonary Medical Consultants. As lung cancer advances, the kind of symptoms that you can experience are things like coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and having a bloody mucus come up as you cough.
Bronchoscopy is a service that we offer. It is a procedure that will allow us to look at your lungs in more detail, as well as the air passages. During a bronchoscopy procedure, you will have a thin tube passed through your nose and mouth, and then down your throat, to your lungs.
If you have been experiencing shortness of breath when doing your normal daily activities, tiredness, chest pain, decreased appetite, and pain in the upper right side of your stomach, then these signs could be an indicator that you have pulmonary hypertension.
