Silicosis Symptoms:

Silicosis is most commonly diagnosed in people over the age of forty as it usually takes years of exposure before the effects of the gradually progressive lung damage becomes apparent. Damage to the lung tissue means that the lungs cannot perform their function of supplying oxygen to the blood as well as they should. The symptoms resulting from this include a cough, with or without sputum, shortness of breath particularly on exertion, and chest tightness. These symptoms of silicosis develop over time as the lung tissue becomes irreversibly damaged by fibrosis and is replaced with solid nodules of scar tissue. This gets getting worse as the lung damage increases.

In the most common form of silicosis, called chronic silicosis, these symptoms develop over many years of exposure. However, in the rarer form, called acute silicosis, the symptoms develop very quickly after only a short period of exposure to high levels of silica dust. In this acute form sufferers can sometimes die within a year.

The damage suffered by the lungs leaves a person susceptible to lung infections, and to TB in particular. Smoking not only aggravates the symptoms of silicosis but also speeds up the progress of the disease. For this reason it is essential that those diagnosed with silicosis are helped to give up smoking.There is no cure for silicosis. Itís essential that the person with silicosis remove themselves from the risks of further silica exposure and that they stop smoking. In the winter immunization against influenza ('flu') is recommended. Sufferers should also have a vaccination against pneumococcal infection, a very common cause of pneumonia. Treatment to reduce inflammation and improve lung function may help and home oxygen therapy can be provided when needed to help with breathing difficulties.

 Common Silicosis Symptoms:             

  • shortness of breath following physical exertion
  • severe cough
  • fatigue
  • loss of appetite
  • chest pains
  • fever
  • cyanosis (bluish skin)
  • and others. (See your doctor and get diagnosed).

The crystalline silica is commonly found in sandstone, granite, slate, coal, and pure silica sand so people who work with these materials, as well as foundry workers, rock cutters, rock drillers and sandblasters are at high risk. Men tend to be affected more often than women since they are more likely to have been exposed to the silica.There are three types of silicosis, depending upon the airborne concentration of crystalline silica to which a worker has been exposed:

Chronic silicosis usually occurs after 10 or more years of overexposure.

 Accelerated silicosis results from higher exposures and develops over 5-10 years.

 Acute silicosis occurs where exposures are the highest and can cause symptoms  to develop within in a few weeks or up to 5 years.

Silicosis Attorney

How could I have gotten silicosis if I always worn a paper dust mask ? What type of respirator works to prevent silica exposure ? Do I have a case if I never worn any type of protection at all ?
(Silica Exposure)

Silicosis Lawyer

I never saw any silicosis warnings on any sand products, paper dust masks, hoods or sandblasting pots or any equipment until a few years ago. Are any of these companies responsible for failing to warn me about the hazards of silicosis ?
(Silica Warnings)

Silicosis Lawyer

Why do sandblasters get silicosis so often ? If I wear a paper mask under my hood will I be safe ? Can other people such as painters and other construction workers be exposed to silica dust 20 - 50 yds away from where I am sandblasting ? Is there a safe amount of silica that one can breath ? Is there a safe way to sandblast without getting silicosis ?
(Sandblasting)

Silicosis Lawyer

Besides shortness of breath, loss of appetite and chest pains are there any other symptoms for silicosis lung disease ? What types of medical tests are available to diagnose silicosis ? Is there a medical cure or any effective treatment for silicosis ?
