Pleural Effusion is fluid that accumulates in the pleural space. You may also hear this described as a “benign pleural effusion” if the accumulations of fluid are non malignant. It may lead to, or predispose you to diffuse bilateral pleural thickening.
When microscopic asbestos fibres are breathed in they become lodged in the lungs. The bodies reaction to the lodged fibres can cause “mesothelial cells” to become abnormal and produce large amounts of fluid. It is this overproduction of fluid by the mesothelial cells that causes the pleural effusion.
Some pleural effusions cause chest pains, but many do not cause any symptoms.
