Asbestosis

Asbestosis is long term inflammation and scarring of the lungs due to asbestos. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, cough, wheezing, and chest pain. Complications may include lung cancer, mesothelioma, and pulmonary heart disease. There is no specific treatment. Recommendations may include influenza vaccination, pneumococcal vaccination, oxygen therapy, and stopping smoking. Asbestosis affected about 157,000 people and resulted in 3,6000 deaths in 2015. Asbestos use has been banned in a number of countries in an effort to prevent disease.
