The lungs are the most vital organ for our breathing, supplying oxygen to our body and keeping it functioning daily. Given their critical role, it is essential to take proper care of our lungs. Despite this, many people still suffer and die from various lung-related diseases due to a lack of awareness. However, early consultation with a pulmonologist can lead to successful treatment, even for complex conditions.

At 'HP Ghosh Hospital,' there is hope for individuals suffering from lung-related diseases. In a recent interview with Anandabazar Online, consultant pulmonologist and joint RICU in-charge, Dr. Sanghabrata Sur, emphasized the importance of lung health. He stated, "Lungs provide oxygen to our brain. If oxygen does not reach the brain for 8 seconds, death can occur. So the lungs play a very important role in keeping the body moving."

Dr. Sur also highlighted the common issue of ignoring mild coughs. He advised, "We often ignore mild coughs. It should never be done. If ignored, a mild cough can lead to serious illness. A mild cough can be caused by many reasons. For example, tonsil problems, if the level of cough increases especially during the season, it can lead to asthma, COPD, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer, etc. Also, chest congestion causes coughing."

In the case of 'interstitial lung disease,' the lungs gradually dry up. However, with modern medical methods, this disease is completely curable. Therefore, if you experience a mild cough, it is crucial not to ignore it. There is no reason to fear lung cancer either. Through diagnostic tools such as X-rays, CT scans, and lung function tests, patients can be effectively treated using prescribed medical procedures.

Taking these insights from Dr. Sur into account, it becomes evident that even mild symptoms should not be disregarded. Early detection and treatment are key to maintaining lung health and preventing severe illnesses.
