Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease caused by the retention of asbestos fibers in the lungs after prolonged exposure to asbestos. Similar to other asbestos-related conditions, asbestosis manifests many years after initial asbestos exposure. Symptoms of asbestosis include shortness of breath and reduced lung function.
