- Asbestos-related lung cancer: As a carcinogenic toxin, asbestos is a well-known cause of lung cancer.
- Asbestosis: The tiny air sacs that allow you to breathe can be scarred from asbestos fibers. This scarring of the lung tissue, called asbestosis, is a debilitating disease that steals the breath of its victims.
- Pleural asbestos diseases: The lining of the lungs is susceptible to many painful and debilitation conditions when asbestos fibers invade the membrane, called the pleura. Some pleural asbestos diseases are relatively manageable while others can be fatal.
- Pleural thickening disease: Diffuse scarring of the membrane surrounding the lungs and chest cavity is known as pleural thickening. The large scars can make breathing painful. In extreme cases, respiratory failure is possible.
- Pleural mesothelioma: Asbestos embedded in the lining of the lungs and chest cavity can trigger the development of malignant tumors. Pleural mesothelioma is generally a deadly form of cancer.
