Can You Die from Asbestosis?

While it is possible to die from asbestosis, the prognosis for this disease is far better than with a diagnosis of mesothelioma.

Asbestosis is a disease in which the lungs become scarred due to years of exposure to asbestos. Asbestosis is typically not diagnosed until many years or decades after exposure.

Many patients with asbestosis were exposed to asbestos occupationally on construction sites, industrial or manufacturing facilities, and shipyards.

Asbestosis is incurable and over time makes breathing more difficult. While treatments may alleviate symptoms, asbestosis is a deadly disease and must be managed carefully. Additionally, those with asbestosis are more likely to develop mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in the future.
