2 Diseases in the Respiratory System Hend Elkatta 6th Grade Science Mrs. Cody
Lung Cancer A disease in the Respiratory System is Lung Cancer. You can get lung cancer by smoking. It can do several bad things to you like chest pain and sometimes you can’t breathe well and it swells your face and neck and you will cough for the rest of your life (if you stop smoking it will probably go away.) & when you spit it will be the color red or even brown. You will get fevers randomly and also lung infections. Sometimes lung cancer can spread to other organs. It might cause a lot of pains like headaches & bleeding, or blood clots. This is why you shouldn’t smoke. That was a disease in the Respiratory System.
Treatment for Lung Cancer • A treatment for lung cancer is cancer. You can have cancer to take the bad stuff outside of you. • Another treatment is surgery. You might have surgery to live because lung cancer can kill you.
