Pleural plaques are the most common sign of asbestos exposure. The condition typically arises 20 to 30 years after exposure to asbestos.
These are a scarring of the outer lining of the lung which normally do not interfere with breathing. In most cases they are not dangerous and do not cause any symptoms.
Because pleural plaques are non-cancerous in most cases no treatment is required.
