If You Think You've Been Exposed To Asbestos But Are Not Exhibiting Any Symptoms What Can You Do?

Postby maeret46 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 9:19 pm

I was removing some insulation around some pipes in a brownstone back in 2002 no mask. I just created this website based on Asbestos and while researching the content I learned a lot about this nasty and naturally occurring mineral. My medical insurance isn't great and I need to consider if I want to go through the expensive tests.

Beyond a chest x-ray and informing your doctor, there is little you can do.
The best thing you can do is stay healthy.
No smoking, no drugs, and keep your weight down.
All of those will make things worse if you do develop an asbestos related disease.

chest xray ( of the lungs) or blood test, you will be aware though u would be at greater risk if you had cut the pipes etc creating a dust.
