Types of Asbestos Related Diseases and Conditions
If you are making an asbestos claim then you will be suffering from a disease, condition or injury as a result of being exposed to asbestos – the fibrous material found in dated buildings and products. There are numerous illnesses that can be caused by asbestos exposure, most of which affect the lungs. When inhaled consistently for a long period of time the small asbestos fibres that enter the lungs are what prove to be hazardous and can cause severe illness. Mesothelioma and asbestosis are the two most common illnesses associated with asbestos exposure, though other conditions such as asbestos warts and pneumothorax can also develop from asbestos exposure.
Mesothelioma is a relatively unknown and rare type of cancer that is caused by constant and continued exposure to asbestos. The mesothelium layer is a membrane that covers and protects the body’s internal organs. In this type of cancer, malignant cells of the mesothelium layer become abnormal and divide without any order or control and destroy the tissues and organs nearby. Working with asbestos is the most common risk factor for mesothelioma. A history of asbestos exposure at work is reported in about 70-80% of all cases. The average age of diagnosis is anywhere between 50 to 70 years of age as symptoms do not show until after 30 to 50 years of exposure to asbestos.
Inhalation of asbestos particles over a prolonged period of time while working in an industrial environment can cause the disease asbestosis. Asbestos fibres can cause lung tissue scarring, reduced air transfer from lungs to the blood, irritation and inflammation of the lungs and it can also lead to lung cancer, including mesothelioma.
