Asbestos is dangerous because it can cause serious health issues, such as cancer. The dangers of asbestos are highest when fibers become airborne. Undisturbed asbestos fibers pose a lower threat as long as they remain enclosed or encased.

Once an individual inhales or ingests asbestos, it may stay in the body indefinitely. Researchers have not yet developed any technique for removing inhaled asbestos fibers from the lungs. The fibers may embed into sensitive tissue and cause irritation and scarring over time. This may lead to cancer or other asbestos health effects.

Asbestos diseases, including mesothelioma, may develop from brief exposures. However, the amount and duration of exposure may impact the risk of asbestos-related diseases. Prolonged and high-volume contact with asbestos may increase the likelihood of developing a related disease like asbestosis.

Short-Term Asbestos ExposureShort-term exposure is generally lower risk. But asbestos fibers can accumulate in the body over time, so repeated instances of short-term exposure are dangerous.

Long-Term Asbestos ExposureLong-term asbestos exposure is more likely to lead to the development of related diseases. Consistent exposure occurring over years is considered long-term.

Signs and Symptoms of Asbestos Exposure

There are no immediate signs of asbestos exposure itself. Individuals may know they are in the presence of asbestos if they are exposed to crumbly (friable) products produced before the 1980s.

Symptoms of asbestos-related illnesses often take 10 โ€“ 50 years to develop. After decades have passed, it can be difficult for people to remember the source of their exposure. Some people may not even realize they were exposed to asbestos at all.

Asbestos Exposure Symptoms

Symptoms of asbestos exposure may vary in severity depending on the type of disease that develops. Patient symptoms will also differ based on disease location. Some of the more common symptoms of mesothelioma include:

  • Chest pain

  • Cough

  • Difficulty swallowing

  • Fatigue

  • Feeling full early

  • Fluid buildup (effusions)

  • Intense bloating (abdominal distension)

  • Loss of appetite

  • Nausea

  • Pain (other forms)

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Weight loss
