From the very beginning Hampson Hughes treated me the utmost respect and kindness, from beginning to end I felt safe and confident. Their phone manner truly made me feel that they cared about me. In future, if need be, I will only ever use Hampson Hughes. Thank you.

Asbestosis & Mesothelioma

The two major illnesses associated with the effects of asbestos inhalation are asbestosis and mesothelioma. There are significant differences between the two conditions:


  • Asbestosis is NOT cancerous
  • Caused by asbestos fibres lodged in the air sacs within the lungs


  • Mesothelioma IS cancerous
  • Caused by asbestos fibres becoming lodged within the lung lining

Asbestosis and mesothelioma symptoms

Asbestos is composed of micro-fibres. Although processed asbestos has the hardness of glass, any slight interference (e.g. scratching) could release the asbestos fibres into the air. If inhaled, asbestos micro-fibres could become embedded in the lung tissue.

Asbestos exposure symptoms

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Pain the in chest
  • Low energy levels
  • Shortness of breath
  • Clubbed fingers (advanced stages)
