In the Pneumology Service of the Hospital Quirónsalud Costa Adeje we deal with the diagnosis, management and treatment of diseases of the respiratory system. The respiratory system consists of: the airways (under the vocal cords), the lung tissue, the pleura, the wall of the thorax, the tissue between the lungs (mediastinum) and the diaphragm.

Lung diseases can present with typical symptoms such as cough, dyspnea (shortness of breath), sputum or pain in the chest, but sometimes there are general symptoms such as fever, malaise, weight loss, night sweats or inflammation in the lungs. It is also possible that there is a lung disease but still without noticeable symptoms.
