Asbestosis

Asbestosis

Asbestosis is a condition that causes fibrosis (excess connective tissue or “scarring”) of the lung. This condition can be caused by other reasons than asbestos exposure but most clinicians will make a diagnosis of asbestosis if there is a history of significant asbestos exposure. The symptoms of asbestosis are breathlessness and a persistent cough; the condition can lead to a reduction in life expectancy as it can place strain on the heart which in turn can lead to cardio respiratory failure.
