Unregulated growth of these cells can lead to loss of lung function, accumulation of lymph rich-fluid in the chest and abdomen and growth of tumors in the kidneys. It is estimated that for every million women, three - five will have LAM. All races are affected and women with LAM have been identified in over sixty countries. There is no cure, no treatment and eventually a lung transplant will be necessary.
