What is Black lung disease?

Black lung disease is a lung disease resulting from scarring of the lungs caused by coal dust. The condition which affects mainly coal miners or sometimes ground colliery workers is caused by them inhaling coal dust particles into their lungs over a long period of time.It is thought that up to one in twenty coal mine workers has evidence of having black lung disease. The symptoms include:

  • shortness of breath
  • obstruction of the airways
  • severe cough
