Left Lower Lobe Pneumonia?

Answer

Pneumonia happens when air sacs of the lungs become infected. Left lower lobe pneumonia is when the lower lobe on the left lung gets infected. If two of these lobes become infected, it is typically called double pneumonia. Pneumonia can be a serious disease, but patients are able to rest and recover at home while taking antibiotics. Smokers and those who have had the cold or flu recently are at the highest risk for pneumonia.
