What is asbestosis?
Asbestosis is caused by inhalation of fibres that get stuck in the lungs, scarring and inflaming the lung tissue and causing a reduction in lung function. The seriousness of the disease is determined by how long you have been exposed to the asbestos and the amount inhaled.
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms sometimes do not manifest until decades after a person has been exposed to asbestos. Common symptoms include:
- Tightness in the chest
- Chest pains
- Abnormal nails
