Can a 35 year old get COPD?


Yes, it is possible for a 35-year-old to develop Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), although it is less common than in older adults. COPD is a progressive lung disease that develops over time and is usually caused by long-term exposure to lung irritants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, and occupational dust and chemicals. However, there are other risk factors that can contribute to the development of COPD, such as a family history of the disease, frequent respiratory infections, and genetics. If you are experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, and chest tightness, it is important to speak with a healthcare provider for evaluation and diagnosis.
