When inhaled into the lung, indestructible asbestos fibres irritate the lining of the lung (the pleura) which causes it to thicken. Pleural thickening is often caused through prolonged exposure to asbestos over time and may affect one lung or both lungs.
Pleural thickening is a progressive illness which worsens over time. It can cause difficulty with breathing and significant chest discomfort.
