Factory workers, mechanics, hairdressers, and farmers are just some of the occupations at risk for lung disease. Even working in an office can lead to lung disease if asbestos was present. If you work in a profession or environment where you were often exposed to dust, airborne debris, or chemicals, you might be at risk for one of these lung diseases.
