Pleural Plaques & Pleural Thickening

The pleura is a sac that lines the outside of the lung and helps with the movement of the lungs in the body.

Pleural plaques are where the asbestos has attacked causing scaring and are normally small and not noticed unless the patients are suffering from an underlying condition.

Pleural thickening is where a larger section of the lung is affected, pleural thickening prevents the lungs being able to fully expand and contract, meaning where cannot get a full breath of oxygen we need in everyday life.

Neither of these diseases is likely to kill you but are your early warning sign for more serious problems.
