Asbestos-Related Diseases, including Mesothelioma

While mesothelioma and lung cancer are commonly linked to asbestos exposure, there are many more types of asbestos-related diseases. Researchers have found about a dozen diseases that have been caused by asbestos exposure.

There is a confirmed relationship between asbestos exposure and other health conditions, such as COPD and kidney cancer. These diseases are not directly caused by asbestos fibers, but researchers believe that asbestos exposure increases a patient's risk for developing the health conditions.

Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure, but there are other asbestos-related conditions that can be mild or as serious as malignant mesothelioma.

If the microscopic needle-like asbestos fibers are able to infiltrate the body, usually by inhaling them in the workplace, it's very difficult for your body to get rid of them. Instead these fibers collect in your lungs and the linings of your chest, lungs and abdomen.

Exposure to asbestos can lead to the following asbestos-related conditions:

Pleural plaque. The lining surrounding your lungs is called the pleura. In this condition, this tissue around the lungs, and also the diaphragm, becomes thick and hard. While this condition typically causes no symptoms, it may show up as a suspicious mass on x-rays or other imaging tests. In rare conditions, pleural plaque will build up and compress part of the lung, causing difficulty breathing.

Pleural effusion. This is a condition in which excess fluid builds up within the pleural space, located between the lungs and chest wall.

Asbestosis. This is a condition that causes scarring within the lung tissue. Patients diagnosed with asbestosis have a greater chance of developing lung cancer because of the existing lung damage, especially if they smoke.

Lung cancer. Cancerous cells grow within the lungs, particularly in the cells that line the air passageways.

Mesothelioma. This is a rare and aggressive cancer of the pleura, caused by asbestos exposure.

Asbestos exposure can cause cancer in other locations within the body, including the abdominal cavity lining, called the peritoneum.

The life expectancy for patients diagnosed with asbestos-related lung conditions can vary, depending on the disease and how much the condition has damaged the lungs.

While lung damage due to asbestos can't be reversed, there are treatments that can slow the progression of diease and help relieve the symptoms, including pain.

Let your doctor know if you've been exposed to asbestos so he or she can watch for symptoms and signs so treatment can start early, if necessary.

There are some lifestyle changes you can make if you are at greater risk for developing an asbestos-related lung disease. Don't smoke, or quit smoking, and take care of your body through healthy eating and regular exercise.
