Pulmonary Vascular Cephalization
Usually from CHF: Vascular congestion or pulmonary edema is usually the result of a cardiac problem call congestive heart failure (chf).

Nothing wrong to get a second opinion from a cardiologist that you trust and follow his lead.
Do not be afraid of asking questions!
you should be allright. ...Read more

Coughing cleans the lungs. Phlegm is the vehicle that allows coughing to clear irritants from the lungs. ...Read more

WISP and Lung Cancer: Our results (expression of cyr61, ctgf, and wisp-1 correlates with clinical features of lung cancer) suggest that cyr61, ctgf, and wisp-1 might be implicated in the development and progression of primary lung cancers, and their levels might serve as valuable prognostic markers, as well as potential targets for therapeutic intervention. ...Read more

A number of things: When fluid accumulates in the spaces around the lungs (pleural spaces), this is called a pleural effusion. There are a number of causes for pleural effusions. One cause is heart failure. When the heart does not work well, its pumping action is decreased and fluid can back up into the lungs and the spaces around the lungs. Another cause might be inflammation of the lungs (as with pneumonia). ...Read more
