A patient’s lifespan and quality of living depend on how advanced the disease is. Asbestos causes irreversible effects, but constant treatment can mitigate the symptoms and improve a patient day-to-day living. Patients must visit their healthcare providers regularly and let them know if the condition worsens. X-ray tests and lung function tests might be required at regular intervals.
Asbestosis patients who smoke should give up this habit to improve their quality of life.

This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
