Asbestos-related diseases
Asbestos-related diseases are disorders of the lung and pleura caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres. Asbestos-related diseases include non-malignant disorders such as

  • asbestosis (pulmonary fibrosis due to asbestos),

  • diffuse pleural thickening,

  • pleural plaques,

  • pleural effusion,

  • rounded atelectasis

  • malignancies such as lung cancer

  • malignant mesothelioma.

People who worked in jobs with high asbestos dust exposure are at the highest risk of developing asbestos-related disease. However, exposure to asbestos may also occur in the worker’s home due to dust that has accumulated on the worker's clothing (para-occupational exposure). Asbestos-related diseases can also occur as a result of non-occupational, environmental exposure.

Asbestos was extensively used in many building materials, therefore large quantities of asbestos still remain in buildings that were built prior to the restriction of asbestos uses. The weathering and aging of such buildings may cause asbestos fragments to be released in the air and create a potential hazard
