Were you looking for information about Sarcoidosis? Sarcaidosis is a common misspelling of sarcoidosis.
Sarcoidosis, a disorder in which inflammation in various organs in the body produces tiny lumps of cells, is not a form of cancer. It usually starts in the lungs or lymph nodes of the chest cavity, but may affect other parts of the body as well. Symptoms of sarcoidosis in the lungs and lymph nodes may include shortness of breath, dry cough, and wheezing. Treatment usually involves prednisone (a corticosteroid or anti-inflammatory drug).
