Lung Conditions

General Information about lung diseases, see your doctor for more information


Bronchitis is swelling and inflammation inside the main airways of your lungs (bronchi) causing them to produce more mucous. Your body tries to get rid of the extra mucous by coughing.


The main symptom is a chesty cough, with green or yellow mucous. You may also get cold symptoms, such as:
  • Mild fever
  • Sore throat
  • Aches and pains
  • Runny nose
  • Headaches

You’ll usually start to feel better after a few days, but the cough may remain for a few weeks. For more information on Bronchitis, you can go to the Health Navigator Webpage
