Pulmonary Fibrosis is a condition marked by thickening and scarring of tissue deep in your lungs. It may also result in inflammation and scarring in your air sacs and their supporting structures. If these conditions progress, it may result in breathing difficulties and impair your lungs’ ability to deliver oxygen to the bloodstream. This can keep your internal organs from getting the oxygen they need to function properly.
In many cases, doctors are unable to determine the cause of pulmonary fibrosis. However, certain factors increase the risk of pulmonary fibrosis. A condition that affects men over the age of 50 more than women. The risk factors are as follows:
