Bronchiectasis is a lung disease which often occurs as a medical condition secondary to another chronic lung condition such as COPD, cystic fibrosis, or pneumonia. We’ve put together a list of key facts about bronchiectasis based on information from the NHS UK.
Bronchiectasis is a condition in which the patient’s airways become enlarged, leading to a build-up of mucus. This excess mucus leaves the lungs more susceptible to picking up infections and causing irreparable damage.
Bronchiectasis is a rare disease, affecting approximately one in 1,000 adults.
