Bronchiectasis describes the widening (“ectasis”) of some of the airways.

It is a condition where the bronchial tubes of your lungs are permanently damaged and enlarged. These damaged air passages allow bacteria and mucus to build up in your lungs. This results in infections and blockages in the airways.

Bronchiectasis is treatable, but it cannot be cured. With treatment, you can live a normal life.
