Silica Dust: What Are the Symptoms & Complications of Silicosis? Mobile App
Chronic silicosis, the most common form of the disease, may go undetected for years in the early stages; in fact, a chest X-ray may not reveal an abnormality until after 15 or 20 years of exposure.
How does it work?
The body's ability to fight infections may be overwhelmed by silica dust in the lungs, making workers more susceptible to certain illnesses, such as tuberculosis. As silicosis progresses, you may exhibit one or more of the symptoms provided in the Silica Dust: What Are the Symptoms & Complications of Silicosis? mobile app. GoCanvas allows you to rename apps if needed.
