Asbestosis is a red flag by itself, in addition to the smoking. Inhalation of asbestos can cause lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the chest and abdomen lining. Chronic breathing in of asbestos would certainly cause at least lung irritation. Hopefully it is just a nodule, and can be treated early and effectively.
