Asbestos-related conditions can cause serious issues in your life. The medical implications can mean that you have to live your life out in pain and having to undergo medical interventions. Many people think about mesothelioma when they hear about asbestos exposure. While this is a serious condition associated with asbestos, other conditions like asbestosis are also possible.
Asbestosis is a chronic lung condition that can impact you for the rest of your life. The condition ranges from mild to severe. It can cause a dry cough, shortness of breath and other symptoms. One troubling point about asbestosis is that it doesn't usually become evident until 10 to 40 years after asbestos exposure.
