    Title: Cough
    Type: Text Slide with Picture

    Speaker Notes: The symptoms of silicosis include coughing, dyspnea, wheezing and chest pain. The elasticity of the lung, which is its ability to expand and contract, can decrease as the disease progresses. Persons with silicosis appear to be more susceptible to contracting tuberculosis. Some studies have also indicated an association between silicosis and lung cancer.
