Millions of individuals in the U.S. have some type of lung (pulmonary) disease, which makes it difficult to breathe. While there are dozens of pulmonary conditions, the most common are chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pneumonia, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, tuberculosis and lung cancer. When all types of lung illnesses are combined, they amount to the third deadliest disease nationwide.
