Q. What is pleural thickening?

Posted: 30th Mar 17 12:23 PM

Pleural thickening is a lung disease which results in calcification, scarring or thickening of the pleura (lining of the lung).  This is different to pleural plaques as the disease extends over a large area of the pleura and may therefore restrict expansion of the lungs making it difficult to breathe. Our experienced solicitors can win you compensation, if you are suffering from an asbestos  related condition.
