Fighting for truth and justice for the victims of asbestos

 

Inhalation of airborne Asbestos fibres into the lung can cause damage...

ASBESTOS RELATED DISEASES

There are several different kinds of diseases that are related to previous exposure to asbestos fibres, and they can be categorised in various ways. Some are malignant or cancerous - such as mesothelioma and lung cancer - others such as asbestosis, pleural plaques, diffuse pleural fibrosis are considered benign. Conditions such as lung cancer and mesothelioma can be and are often severely disabling. The other more benign conditions can, but rarely produce the symptoms and are less disabling than the malignant diseases.

 

Some of the above are very clearly and directly attributable to exposure to asbestos, such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. For others, such as gastro-intestinal tract cancers, the causal connection to asbestos exposure is one that appears probable but has not yet been proven with certainty.

 

Each of these asbestos-related diseases can only be diagnosed through medical examinations and tests. If you were exposed to asbestos it does not mean that you therefore must have, or will have, an asbestos-caused disease. But it does mean that you should be vigilant about your health, receive regular medical care and checkups and tell your doctor about your asbestos exposure.
