What is pleural thickening?
Pleural thickening is the scarring and fibrosis of the pleura, the double layered membrane which surrounds the lungs and lines the inside of the rib cage. When the pleura thickens, it becomes less elastic which can cause a feeling of breathlessness. Most cases of pleural thickening can be attributed to exposure to past asbestos dust.
