Asbestosis is caused by breathing in asbestos fibres, which leads to the lungs losing elasticity and struggling to work as efficiently as before.

The symptoms of asbestosis include shortness of breath, a tight chest which is painful and a cough. In order to diagnosis asbestosis your doctor may have to carry out a biopsy to assess some of the tissue from your lungs. If diagnosed with asbestosis, unfortunately there is no cure. The symptoms of the condition can, however, be alleviated with medication and oxygen therapy.
