In bronchiectasis, the airways in your lungs become wider, scarred, and swollen. This can make breathing difficult. The tiny, hair-like cells in the bronchial tubes, which normally clear mucus, get damaged. When mucus builds up in the airways, it allows bacteria to grow and cause infections. This further damages the airways, worsening bronchiectasis. The accumulated mucus can also result in a cough with varying amounts of mucus.

Bronchiectasis is a progressive disease that worsens over time. While there's no cure, there are treatments available to help manage symptoms.
