Asbestos Exposure, Asbestosis and Mesothelioma
Long-term asbestos exposure can lead to asbestosis, a chronic illness affecting the tissue of the lungs. Asbestosis is caused by asbestos exposure and inhalation of asbestos fibers, usually during high intensity and/or long-term working on the production or end-use of asbestos products.
The symptoms of asbestosis do not show until after a long time, often several decades since the first asbestos exposure. Smoking increases the risk of developing asbestosis and/or mesothelioma.
Asbestos was used in building construction before 1975. Asbestos exposure also occurred in asbestos mining and milling industries, construction materials manufacture, building fireproofing, etc. The families of asbestos workers are also at risk of asbestosis and/or mesothelioma due to exposure to asbestos particles brought home on clothing.
Asbestos-related diseases include calcification (pleural plaque), pleural effusion and malignant mesothelioma. Mesothelioma and/or asbestosis may develop 20 - 40 years after asbestos exposure.
