Pulmonary fibrosis due to asbesotos exposure

How does asbestos exposure lead to pulmonary fibrosis?

Although the causal relationship between asbestos exposure and pulmonary fibrosis has not been recognized yet, a series of reliable medical studies found this disease highly prevalent among former industrial workers and veterans who were repeatedly exposed to high levels of the toxic mineral. The signs of asbestos-related pulmonary diseases can be detected by conducting a chest X-ray which should be reviewed by a board-certified B-reader radiologist.

Diagnosing asbestos-related illnesses can be difficult, especially if past asbestos exposure is omitted from the occupational profile. A pulmonary fibrosis misdiagnosis greatly affects your prognosis. We strongly recommend seeking a second opinion from a specialist in asbestos-related diseases as this can help you receive an accurate diagnosis.
