Asbestos exposure can lead to more than mesothelioma

Exposure to asbestos is often associated with mesothelioma. However, this isn’t the only condition that can result from asbestos exposure. While asbestos isn’t as common today as it was in the past, there are still people who are dealing with the impacts of previous exposure.

Understanding the conditions that can come from asbestos exposure may help people who have been around the substance to spot when something is amiss. Besides mesothelioma, there are three conditions that are commonly associated with asbestos.

Lung cancer

Exposure to asbestos can lead to lung cancer that’s not associated with mesothelioma. While there’s a chance that this cancer might not be as aggressive as mesothelioma, it’s still very serious. Many forms of lung cancer are fatal, and most require intense treatment that can be difficult for the patient to handle.

Pleural disease

Pleural disease impacts the linings of the lung. This can come in the form of patches or thickening on the pleura. These diseases can also lead to difficulty breathing, as well as trouble with oxygenating the blood.


Asbestosis is a scarring of the lungs. It’s not cancerous but it can impact your ability to breathe. This condition can’t be reversed and can lead to a lack of oxygen throughout the body.

Anyone who’s been exposed to asbestos should ensure they’re being monitored by a doctor for all conditions associated with this substance. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since the exposure because some of these conditions can take decades to show up. Seeking compensation for the health implications related to the asbestos exposure can help you afford the care you need so you can enjoy the time you have with your loved ones.
