Diffuse pleural thickening

processing claims for over 50 years

This condition develops when asbestos fibers on the outer lining of the lungs gradually cause tissue scarring, which eventually leads to the thickening of the pleura. While pleural plaques concern a small region of the lungs affected by tissue thickening, diffuse pleural thickening entails the scarring of a larger surface of the pleura.

Diffuse pleural thickening may be a forerunner of lung cancer and mesothelioma. Asbestos screening is a must as the asbestos fibers are well distinguishable on a chest X-ray.
