Sarcoidosis The Silent Disease
It was in 1995 that I first heard the word sarcoidosis. While in the ER for chest pain a x ray was taken of my lungs. Nodules were found in my lungs and a enlarged lymph node in my chest.These are the classic signs of sarcoidosis..A bronchoscope and a lung biopsy were performed to rule out cancer and other conditions. Sarcoidosis is a disease that attacks the immune system and can effect any organ . It can be life threatening are without any symptoms at all. Like me most people never know they have sarcoidosis until found on a routine chest x ray
