Dr. Lokesh Guglani answered:

Is pneumonia bilateral in children contagious?

Yes

Children
Most cases on bilateral pneumonia in children are caused by viruses or bacteria. These organisms can spread through droplets coughed out by the infected child into their surroundings & anyone nearby can inhale those droplets & thus acquire the infection if sufficient number of organisms have entered the lungs to start multiplying in the new host & cause infection

Bilateral pneumonia complicated by pleural effusion-- can this be fatal?

Probably not...

Pulmonary_edema
This condition is typically treated with antibiotcs and drainage of the effusion with a chest tube if it is large enough. Generally it is not fatal; however, if severe enough & not responsive to treatment, this can be very serious.

Person has stage 4 cancer with Mets to the brain, and now has bilateral pneumonia, how bad is this? Is this the cancer trying to spread? What's next?

Very bad

Cerebrum
The cancer does not have to try to spread, it already has. Discuss this with the person's doctor and get an estimate of how long they are expected to survive and whether it is time to call in hospice. You also need to ask what further therapy is likely to make a meaningful difference in survival and whether that survival is functional or just further misery. Good luck.

Dr. Paul A. Cohen answered:

what is pneumonia?

Pneumonia

Chest_x-ray
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungus. It can be diagnosed by a physician by chest x-ray in most cases. most cases (if caught early enough) can be easily treated as an outpatient. It becomes more problematic in the elderly, and more medically frail patients so get evaluated by your doctor if you believe you have it!
