What causes mucus buildup in lungs?

Various lung diseases that cause excess mucus are asthma, COPD (emphysema and chronic bronchitis) and lung cancer, explains the American Lung Association. Cystic Fibrosis can also cause a mucus build up in the lungs, although cystic fibrosis is a disease affecting all mucus membranes in the body, not only the mucus membranes the lungs, states Mayo Clinic.
