Is asthma a chronic lung disease?

Yes, asthma is considered a chronic lung disease. It is a condition in which the airways in the lungs become inflamed, narrowed, and clogged with mucus, making it difficult to breathe. Asthma is characterized by episodes of wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing, which can be triggered by a variety of factors such as dust, pollution, cigarette smoke, cold air and certain medications. Asthma can be managed with proper treatment and management but it is not curable. Some people may experience symptoms occasionally, while others may have symptoms all the time.
