Bronchiectasis - What it is

Bronchiectasis is a chronic lung condition. There is abnormal dilatation of the airways with scarring and inflammation causing mucus or “phlegm” production.

Your airways become widened and unable to clear the phlegm properly. This results in mucus pooling, making your airways prone to infection, which can further damage your airways.

Once the damage has occurred, it is permanent.
