Hey everyone!
I've had asthma since early childhood, and a beautiful pattern is forming between be and the doctors on visits. Around spring-winter, i get sinusitus, this time it was neumonia/acute bonchitus. productive cough, blood. >_< Took the antibiotics, and my chest doesnt hurt so much, but i got a chest x-ray and one of my lungs (left?) is scarred (possibly a prior case on neumonia, that i didnt see the doc for is what it could be). we're going to do a follow up e=x-ray, and if anyone's interested i'll follow up on this board what happens. if you've had this happen to you, PLEASE reply, lets get this figured out. Thank you!

QUESTIONS:

could the scarred lung tissue mean anything severe?

can asthma turn into a harsher breathing condition (lung cancer..)?

can asthma inhalers/nose steriods taken on regular basis (as directed) create any more adverse health effects for me in the future?
