Breathing Asbestos Fibers

Breathing high levels of asbestos fibers for a long time can lead to an increased risk of asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Asbestosis is a noncancerous lung disease related to scarring of the lungs. This disease occurs in people heavily exposed to asbestos in the workplace and in household contacts of asbestos workers.

Lung cancer is a relatively common form of cancer, which has been linked to smoking and a variety of occupational exposures. Cigarette smoking significantly increases the risk of lung cancer for people exposed to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer of the membranes lining the lungs, chest, and abdominal cavity. Almost all cases are linked to occupational asbestos exposure.

The symptoms of these diseases do not usually appear until 20 to 30 years after the first exposure to asbestos.
