Chemotherapy and breathing problems are sometimes related. The list of breathing problems potentially aggravated by chemotherapy includes: Bronchitis (acute and chronic), dyspnea (shortness of breath), pneumonia, pneumonitis, pulmonary fibrosis, and pulmonary toxicity.
WHAT DO THE LUNGS DO?
The lung is an organ found in your chest cavity. Each lung is divided into lobes. On the left side, you have the left upper- and the left lower- lobe. On the right side, there are 3 lobes: the right upper-, mid-, and lower lobe. A thin lining, called the pleura, surrounds the lobes of the lung.
As you breathe, air moves down your windpipe (your trachea), through a tree-like structure called the bronchi.
Near the end of the branches of the bronchi are the smaller bronchioles.
At the end of the bronchioles are grape-like structures called alveoli, which open and close during normal breathing.
The lung is sterile. Your immune system works hard to prevent foreign invaders from contaminating its environment.
Anything that interrupts this system of respiration – including a blockage, such as a foreign body, infection, inflammation, scarring, or injury, or even some chemotherapy treatments – can cause you to experience breathing problems. This page includes lung problems that you may experience while you are undergoing treatment.
COMMON LUNG EXAMINATIONS
Brochoscopy – Using a thin, flexible tube, called a bronchoscope, this procedure enables your doctor to look at the air passages to your lungs.
If your breathing problems result in a bronchoscopy, your healthcare provider may perform a washing, or a lavage, to collect cells from your lungs.
To wash or lavage the lungs, the specialist will put a small amount of saline solution down the tube. He or she will then remove the fluid, and examine the fluid for cells under the microscope.
Also, if the examiner sees a suspicious finding, such as a tumor, or possible infection, he or she may take a sample (or biopsy) of the area for examination under the microscope.
You may have a bronchoscopy if:
Your doctor or healthcare provider suspects that there is a foreign body in your lungs
Your breathing problems include coughing up blood
There may be an abnormality in your lungs
There is a growth or infection in your lungs or airways, which needs to be biopsied. This will help your healthcare provider determine the best treatment possible for you.
You may be required to fast (not eat) after midnight the day of the exam. After your procedure, your jaw or throat may be a little sore.
Your healthcare provider will give specific instructions to you before the procedure. Make sure to ask any questions before your test is performed.
Chest X ray – This is a quick and painless procedure where a picture, or an x-ray, will be taken to look at the internal structures of your chest. The chest x-ray will look specifically at your lungs, heart, and ribs.
This one-dimensional view may provide your healthcare provider with important information about what is happening inside your chest wall, and lung region.
Chest x-rays may be done routinely, if your healthcare provider wants to “watch” a certain finding. It may also be done if you have symptoms of breathing problems, such as a prolonged cough, or chest pain.
If your healthcare provider or doctor thinks there may be a suspicious finding, he or she may recommend that a more accurate test be done, such as a CAT scan.
Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan – A CT Scan is often recommended to diagnose and identify chemotherapy-based breathing problems. This test is more specific than plain x-rays, as a computer takes x-rays of your chest, from different angles, to show a cross-sectional view of your chest and lungs. How it works:
As you lie on a movable table, a scanner inside of a machine moves around you. X-rays are taken at different angles, as the computer records the pictures. The computer then puts the pictures in a specific order, so that the specialist can interpret the findings.
Sometimes, you may be given a contrast (dye) solution, either taken by mouth (oral) or injected into a large vein (IV). This helps to improve the picture, and show any abnormalities as the dye passes through your body. Your doctor may want you to drink oral contrast if he or she wants to examine your abdomen or pelvis at the same time the chest is examined.
You may be required to fast (not eat) after midnight the day of the exam. Your healthcare provider will give specific instructions to you.
Lung Scan (Ventilation-Perfusion scan [VQ]) – Your doctor or healthcare provider will order this test if he or she suspects that you may have developed a blood clot in your lungs, called a pulmonary embolism (PE). You may have experienced shortness of breath, or chest discomfort, which may signify that a blood clot may be present.
A radioactive dye is injected into your vein. A camera photographs how the blood is flowing through your lungs.
If there is a blockage in the flow of blood, this may mean that you have a blood clot.
If a blood clot is present, your doctor or healthcare provider may suggest that you be hospitalized so that you can receive a blood thinner in the vein (IV), and be closely monitored.
Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) – If you experience breathing problems during chemotherapy, a pulmonary function test may be recommended. This test shows how well your lung function is. It may also be called spirometry. Your healthcare provider may order many tests, all done at once, which all show how well you are moving air through your lungs.
You will be asked to blow into a tube (a spirometer), as forcefully as possible. This amount of air that you blow is then recorded. The machine will measure your:
Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) – this is the maximum amount (in volume) of air that can be forcefully exhaled (blown out) with a single breath, which indicates the size of your lungs.
Forced expiratory volume (FEV1) – This is the amount of air that is forcefully blown out of your lungs in one second.
By looking at the ratio of FVC to FEV1, your healthcare provider may have an indication of your lung functioning. This may help to diagnose many short-term and long-term lung conditions.
You may receive this exam if you are experiencing shortness of breath at rest, or when you perform certain activities. You may also receive this test if you are about to undergo a certain type of chemotherapy that may cause damage to your lungs.
Sputum Culture – your doctor or healthcare provider will ask you to cough up a sample of your sputum or phlegm to send to the microbiology lab.
is best to submit a sputum specimen in the early morning.
Normal bacteria that are in your mouth may contaminate the sample, so it will be easier to see if lung bacteria are present following a deep cough.
The bacteria that are present in your sample will help your healthcare provider determine the best treatment for you.

1. Kidney Beans
If you eat undercooked or raw kidney beans, the toxin phytohaemagglutinin (a lectin, known to interfere with cellular metabolism) can cause extreme nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and in some cases you may need to be hospitalized. Sometimes known as Red Kidney Bean Poisoning, this condition is caused by eating raw, soaked kidney beans or beans that have been cooked in a crock pot without being boiled (or heated to a high enough temperature first). In fact, heating kidney beans to 176 degrees F may increase their toxicity five-fold compared to eating the raw, which is why outbreaks have been associated with slow cookers or crockpots. Illness can occur from just four or five undercooked cooked or raw beans. In order to make kidney beans safe for consumption, you must soak them for at least 5 hours, get rid of the water and then boil them briskly in fresh water for at least 10-30 minutes.
Though technically a fungus, many species of wild mushrooms contain poisons that can cause illness ranging from mild to deadly. In some cases, symptoms don’t appear for hours, days or even weeks after the mushroom is eaten, and by that time permanent organ damage may have already occurred. Toxins in wild mushrooms cannot be made “safe” by any from of cooking, freezing or processing, and it can be extremely difficult to discern a poisonous mushroom from a safe one. To be safe, unless you’re a trained expert on mushroom identification, don’t eat any mushrooms you find in the wild.
Corn can be contaminated with aflatoxin, a toxin produced by fungus that can grow on certain foods. Aflatoxins are known to cause cancer as well as liver and immune-system problems. Although a human illness outbreak related to aflatoxin has not been reported in the United States, they have occurred in other countries, and aflatoxin-contaminated pet foods have caused outbreaks and deaths among dogs and cats in the United States. It is, however, difficult to prove that a disease such as cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer is caused by aflatoxin, even though there is reliable evidence that it is an important danger to public health (particularly when unregulated). Other foods that may contain aflatoxin include peanuts, rice, dried coconut meat, cocoa beans, figs, ginger and nutmeg.
If a potato is green or sprouted, it’s a sign that it contains solanine, a compound that is toxic even in small amounts. Eating a green potato, or potato sprouts, can cause what’s known as potato plant poisoning or solanum tuberosum poisoning, leading to symptoms ranging from diarrhea and vomiting to delirium, paralysis, shock and, in extremely rare cases, death.
The leaves and stems of the tomato plant contain glycoalkaloid, a toxin that can lead to stomach upset, headache and dizziness. Green tomatoes do contain some alkaloid poison as well, but generally in too small of quantities to be dangerous. That said, tea made from tomato leaves should be avoided.
Rhubarb stalks, which are actually stems of a perennial plant, are quite tasty when used in pies or crumbles, but the leaves of this plant are very poisonous. If you eat rhubarb leaves, it can cause vomiting and diarrhea, along with seizures, difficulty breathing, kidney problems, coma and even death due to the oxalic acid salts they contain.
7. Lima Beans
Lima beans contain the deadly poison cyanide, which is produced to prevent predators from eating them. Eating large amounts of raw lima beans may cause violent illness and death, so be sure they are thoroughly cooked (soaked and then boiled in fresh water for at least 10 minutes) before eating.
Parsnips contain naturally occurring chemicals called psoralens, which cause genetic mutation and cancer in animals when exposed to ultraviolet light. These toxins are not destroyed by normal cooking, leading researchers to question whether they may have toxic consequences in humans.[ii]
9. Alfalfa Sprouts
Alfalfa sprouts have made the news many times due to contamination with salmonella and e. coli, however even when not contaminated they contain a natural chemical called canavanine that has been found to cause a lupus-like autoimmune disease in an animal study. There is some evidence that people with lupus may want to avoid alfalfa sprouts as they may aggravate the condition.
Spinach contains compounds called oxalates, which can bind to calcium in your body. If eaten in large quantities, there is some evidence that suggests it may contribute to the formation of kidney stones (most kidney stones in U.S. adults are calcium oxalate stones). However, some believe restricting dietary oxalates will not reduce kidney stone formation. Other vegetables that contain oxalates include Swiss chard, beet greens, okra, parsley, collard greens and leeks.
11. Fava Beans
In people with G6PD deficiency, a hereditary abnormality, eating fava beans (and certain other legumes) may destroy red blood less and cause hemolytic anemia — a condition known as favism. This deficit is most common in people from Africa, followed by those from the Mediterranean and southeast Asia.
Though ordinarily healthy, celery topped the Environmental Working Group’s 2011 list of fruits and vegetables most contaminated with pesticides. Coming in at #2 (apples were #1), celery was found to be highly contaminated and tested positive for 57 different pesticides.[iii] If you’re going to eat celery, buying organic makes sense.
