What is the prognosis for asbestosis?

Unlike mesothelioma, asbestosis is a non-malignant disease. Although the prognosis is more positive, the damages asbestos caused to the lining of the lungs is irreversible. Therefore, palliative treatment is necessary in order to ensure the patient increases the quality of his/her life. Patients will need to increase the treatment dose as the disease progresses.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
