lung

Body Part
Description
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs,transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, CO2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the circulation for cellular use.

Lung tumor symptoms?

Chest x-ray/MRI/PET

Lung_cancer
There could be blood in the sputum, that is always a cause for concern and gets people motivated. However, pain is usually not a symptom, until later in the process. Seeing your PCP and asking for a chest x-ray is a great place to start! The PCP will help guide you from there. If you suspect something let him/her know, so they can rule that question out, or substantiate your suspicion.

What's lung dilation?

Over-inflation

Lung
When air can get into the lungs but cannot get out very well, it can cause the lungs to be over-inflated. This can become a long-lasting problem. Usually this type of problem comes when the breathing tubes ("airways") are small or obstructed. Asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis are common problems to cause this. In people who smoke, this problem of over-inflation is usually called emphysema.
