    Chronic Smoker + Asthma.. Lung Cancer?

    Hello All, I’ve chronically smoked marijuana for the past five or so years(roughly every day). I smoked both dry herb and hash oils. Whenever I would smoke, I would cough a fair amount. Hash oils (butane hash oil) would usually get me coughing pretty bad. Anyways, I was pretty stuck in my habits and couldn’t be told otherwise. I’ve recently quit smoking and am starting to get a little paranoid about the damage i’ve done to my body, mainly my lungs. I’ve had moderate asthma since i was a young child....

They said I could have gallstones and fatty liver. There was moderate hydrothropy of the right lobe of my prostrate but everything was normal.

    Hemoptysis and chest discomfort

    Dear WebMD community, I have a problem with coughing that I want to ask you about. First of all I am a 25 year old male student who used to smoke cigarettes and weed for the past 3-3.5 years. About 2 joints per day and 10-15 cigarettes. I quit 7 days ago, but I cough up mucus with black (or really dark brown) spots. Today, in the morning, I felt sore in my throat and had a runny nose. I took 2 paracetamols (500 mg's each) and after about an hour I felt the need to cough (a little bit). I "coughed....

    Oxygen Therapy PSI and LPM

    So my aunt has 4 different delivery systems. One 3000psi Large O2 tank, one small tank, one oxygen concentrator and another oxygen concentrator. I've had difficulty explaining why she likes the large 02 tank at 2 L/min. I've downloaded the single stage regulator documentation and shown them its outlet pressure is a constant 100psi as it doesn't have an adjustable psi regulator. The smaller regulator outlet is set at 50 psi on the transportable tank. Which is why she raises it to about....
