ASBESTOS DISEASES

Mesothelioma
Malignant Mesothelioma is the most serious of all asbestos- related diseases. It is a rare form of cancer in which malignant calls are found in the sac lining of the chest (pleura) or abdomen (peritoneum). Virtually all cases of malignant mesothelioma are attributable to asbestos exposure.

Lung Cancer
Lung cancer occurs when malignant cells originate in the lung. It is the most common asbestos-related cancer found in present or ex-smokers who have a history of asbestos exposure.

Asbestosis
Asbestosis is the scarring of the tissue of the lung itself from inhalation of airborne asbestos fibers. Many doctors who do not have a good understanding of asbestos-related diseases tend to use the term "asbestosis" as a buzzword for any and all conditions related to asbestos.

Pleural Diseases
Pleural disease is any scarring of the pleura -- the lining of the lung. It is evidence that an individual has sustained a heavy enough response to asbestos to be at substantial risk for more serious disease.
