Spirometry (Pulmonary Function Test/ Lung Function Test) measures airflow. By measuring how much air you exhale and how quickly you inhale and exhale.Spirometry can evaluate a broad range of lung diseases.

In a spirometry test, while you are sitting, you breathe into a mouthpiece that is connected to an instrument called a spirometer. The spirometer records the amount and the rate of air that you breathe in and out over a period of time. When standing, some numbers might be slightly different. The most important issue is to perform the test always while at the same position.

How the Test is Performed?

For some of the test measurements, you can breathe normally and quietly. Other tests require forced inhalation or exhalation after a deep breath. Sometimes you will be asked to inhale the substance or a medicine to see how it changes your test results.

How to Prepare for the Test?

Do not eat a heavy meal before the test. Do not smoke for 4 to 6 hours before the test. You will get specific instructions if you need to stop using bronchodilators or inhaler medications. You may have to breathe in medication before or during the test.

Why the Test is performed?

Pulmonary function tests are done to:

  • Diagnose certain types of lung disease (such as asthma, bronchitis and emphysema)
  • Find the cause of shortness of breath
  • Measure whether exposure to chemicals at work affects lung function
  • Check lung function before someone has surgery

It also can be done to:

  • Assess the effect of medication
  • Measure progress in disease treatment

Cancer is the name given to a large group of diseases, in which the cells are growing out of control. Cells make up all of the parts of our bodies go through a life cycle. The old cells die and new cells form to take their place.

Occasionally, this process goes awry. The cells begin to multiply rapidly forming a mass of cells called as a tumour. A benign tumour does not spread, to other parts of the body. It is considered non-cancerous. A malignant tumour, can spread throughout the body and is considered cancerous.

Many tumours cause swelling or lump on accessible part of the body, i.e.: skin, breast, testicle or oral cavity. A typical swelling due to a cancer is initially painless, though ulceration may occur which may then become painful.

Cancer is possibly curable if diagnosed and treated in early stages. During the late stages when cure may not be possible, patients can be treated to have meaningful life with disease. Correct diagnosis, supervision and management is of utmost importance.
