The Lungs

The lungs are the most commonly affected organ in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). As a result, patients with CF can have a chronic cough, phlegm production, shortness of breath, chest tightness, sinus problems and occasionally cough up blood. Although CF lung disease is progressive, meaning that slowly worsens over time, the CF team can work with you to minimize this natural progression and maximize your lung function.
