Pleural Plaques

Asbestos exposure is almost exclusively responsible for the development of pleural plaques, a condition which involves the thickening of the outer lining of the lungs (pleura). Pleural plaques typically appear within 20 to 50 years of first exposure to asbestos and although this condition is benign, it is not impossible for a form of cancer to affect the lungs in the future.
