Which lung is bigger, the left or the right?
The lungs are a pair of spongy, air-filled organs located on either side of the chest. Your lungs supply life-sustaining oxygen to your body and release carbon dioxide from the bloodstream into the atmosphere. You have two lungs, but they aren't the same size. Instead, the lung on the right side of your body is larger and heavier than the lung on the left. This extra space on the left leaves room for your heart. Each lung is divided into upper and lower lobes. There are three lobes in the right lung and only two in the left lung.
