apical pleural thickening can be cured by ferma beans (100L) per day. (as long it is actually only apical pleural thickening and not cancer)

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Pleura is like a thin lung cover. It can get thickened due to infection or inflammation. Apical pleura covers the top portion of lung just underneath your collar bone. Most common causes of apical thickening are bacterial pneumonia, chemotherapy, infection and lupus. Treatment involves: finding the cause, treating it, and removing the thickened pleura by surgery to relieve pressure off the lungs.
Please discuss with a chest specialist. Take care!
