Approximately 80 percent of the patients with mild emphysema lived more than four years after the diagnosis. 60 to 70 percent of patients with moderate emphysema were alive after four years. 50 percent of patients with severe emphysema were alive after four years.Is emphysema a fatal disease?
Emphysema is a chronic lung disease. That means it can get worse over time, and eventually, one can die from it. Another way to look at it is: emphysema is always fatal if you don't die of something else first, and likewise, emphysema is never fatal if something else kills you first.Is emphysema a death sentence?
Similar to many chronic diseases, the prognosis is affected by too many variables to be discussed here. There is no cure, but there are effective methods of treatment, which can slow the progression of the disease and allow for a normal life. In short, the diagnosis of emphysema is not a death sentence.
