There are certain individuals who are more easily injured by exposure to asbestos. The following is a list of those with elevated risk of developing an asbestos-related disease:
- Those with breathing problems
- People with protracted exposure to asbestos
- Those who think they have had protracted exposure to asbestos
- Immediate family members of those who have worked in asbestos-related environments, even if the individual who worked with asbestos has no noticeable symptoms or irregular breathing patterns
The following are the ailments which are associated with asbestos exposure: lung cancer, asbestosis (a serious, chronic, non cancerous fibrous hardening and scarring of the lungs), mesothelioma (a cancer of the thin membranes lining the thoracic and abdominal cavities and surrounding internal organs), and pleural plaque and thickening (scarring of the lining of the lung). The warning signs of asbestos-related diseases are coughing, coughing blood, shortness of breath, chest pain and weight loss. Unfortunately, the tangible symptoms of contact with asbestos can appear up to 25 years after initial exposure. Annual or even semi-annual asbestos detection tests are recommended.
If you need more information from your doctor, don't be afraid to ask.It is vital that the other testing is an x-ray (side and front view of your chest.) Further tests may include a pulmonary function test, blood work, a CT scan and/or biopsy. Doctors sometimes speak a language unintelligible to the layman.
