Asbestos Cancer and Disease Overview
Exposure to asbestos can cause a variety of diseases, both malignant and benign. Malignant diseases are those that involve neoplasms, or cancer growths, that can metastasize, or spread to other organs or body systems. Benign diseases are those that are not cancerous. "Benign" in this sense certainly does not mean harmless, as these conditions can be life-threatening themselves.
