Asbestos related illnesses
Are you worried that you have been
exposed to asbestos? If you are concerned that you have been
exposed to asbestos you should consult your GP as soon as possible.
Symptoms of breathlessness or a painful chest can cause concern if
you have been exposed to asbestos in the past.
The likelihood is that it is
unrelated to your asbestos exposure, as the risk of developing an
asbestos condition such as mesothelioma is in fact quite low. Your
GP is the best person to guide you as to what, if anything, needs
done. They may refer you to a hospital for a chest X-ray if they
feel it necessary and depending on the outcome of that a scan
and/or other investigations may be required.
Asbestos related illness
If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos condition it is
important that you find out as much as you can about your condition
from your doctor.
