Dangers of asbestos in brief

Asbestos is extremely fibrous and any contact with the substance where it is disturbed can put you at risk of disease. Airborne fibres become embedded asbestos fibres in the lung tissues, causing a number of diseases such as:

Asbestosis

This is scarring of the lungs: the airways become so inflamed and scarred that oxygen is no longer able to pass from the lungs into the blood. The lungs become stiff and inelastic, making breathing progressively difficult.

Lung Cancer

Exposure to asbestos fibres greatly increases a person’s risk of developing lung cancer, more so if they are also a smoker.

Pleural disease

Inflammation and irritation of the outer lining of the lung, the pleura. The pleura stiffens and thickens widely or in patches, and can fill with fluid. This thickening can also restrict breathing.

Mesothelioma

A rare and often fatal cancer of the mesothelium, the membrane that covers most of the body’s internal organs. Where it cannot be surgically removed, this condition is incurable. The average survival time after diagnosis is only 6-18 months. A very small exposure to asbestos can be enough to trigger Mesothelioma, which can develop decades after exposure to asbestos.

Contact your doctor if you think you may be at risk of an asbestos related disease.
