Asbestos is a proven human carcinogen, and all forms of asbestos can cause cancer. Inhaling significant quantities of airborne asbestos causes scarring of lung tissue, cancers that develop around the lungs or intestine, cancer of the esophagus, larynx, and ovary. Another pathological feature of asbestos exposure is the presence of pleural plaques or pleural thickening which results from lesions forming on the lung lining. These can be detected by a chest X-ray.
