Is lung capacity at 53% dangerous?

Need to find out why

Bronchial_system
During a pulmonary function test, there are typically three measurements taken. First, how well the air "moves" in and out of the lungs. COPD, asthma, bronchitis, etc are things that would cause it to drop. Second, the efficiency of oxygen transfer is measured, the diffusion. Last, the lung sizes are measured. Again, which value is down and why its down is the most important thing to find.

Healthy_diet
There is no special diet or supplements for that. Avoid pollution (esp in India), do not smoke, exercise, and eat healthy food daily (low oil, no ghee at all, limit meat, and limit sugars/sweets).

What is the survival percentage non small cell lung cancer?

The stage and others

Oncologists
will depend on the stage and other prognostic factors. In general, the 5 year overall survival for stage 1 is 60-80%., stage 2 is 40-50%; stage 3 is 10-23%, and stage 4 is less than 10%. These however are the statistics obtained when using regular cytotoxic chemotherapy. With more personalized and more targetted therapy-we are hoping the number will improve.

Is there a way to fake your lung capacity in a blowing test?

Why?

Chest-lung
The answer is not with adequate consistency to get a good study, but why would you want to do that? These tests are expensive and time consuming, why would you waste your own and everyone else's time to do it.

What is the capacity of asthmatic lungs vs non asthmatic lungs?

Lung capacity/asthma

Asthma
Total lung capacity is the volume of air in the lungs at the end of maximal inspiration. Asthmatics can have higher lung volumes than normal people because their lungs become hyperinflated when they have attacks. They have trouble breathing all the way out, so the volume left over afterward, the residual lung volume, is also elevated. In severe asthmatics, fibrosis/scars can decrease volumes.
