Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease that results difficulty in breathing. It is usually caused by lung damage due to years of irritation and inflammation in the lungs, which limits the air flow in the lungs. There are several factors that increase the chances of a person having COPD, including smoking, pollution, genetics, or a history of lung infections.
Symptoms: COPD symptoms are shortness of breath, a dry cough, coughing fits that bring up mucus from the lungs, wheezing, and chest tightness.
