When to see a doctor about asbestosis

A family doctor should be consulted if you notice any of the symptoms relating to asbestosis, especially if you think you have been exposed to any asbestos in the past (either at work, at home, or elsewhere).


People who have existing asbestosis need to maintain regular visits with their doctor and lung specialist, to monitor the health of their lungs, to monitor any medication and to determine if there is any worsening of symptoms.
