In brief: Usually none
Most people with asbestos exposure have no symptoms.
Asbestos can result in asbestosis of the lung which causes scarring of the lung resulting in decreased lung function, which often produces shortness of breath. It can also cause pleural effussions, lung cancer or mesothelioma.
