Asbestos related diseases and cancer are caused by breathing in asbestos fibres. The fibres have no smell and they are invisible to the human eye.  The fibres irritate and scar lung tissue and cause what is known as fibrosis.  Large amounts of scarring from exposure to asbestos over a long period of time can cause asbestosis and significantly increases the risk of developing lung cancer.


Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lung and appears in the lung pleura or the abdominal peritoneum. Early symptoms of the cancer begin with breathlessness, chest pains, severe coughs, low energy levels and night-time sweating.

Exposure to asbestos is assumed to be one of the direct causes of mesothelioma deaths. Exposure to asbestos at work is the main factor behind most mesothelioma cases, with more man reporting to develop the cancer than woman. This is due in part to more men working with asbestos in construction jobs and asbestos removal.
