If you have fibrosis on your lungs, will it get worse no matter what?

My husband visited the er this weekend. He was told he had fibrosis on his lungs. He failed a pulmonary function test today. He is now being referred to a pulmonary specialist. He was told this is from working and breathing in with wood dust. My question is, Is this the same as Pulmonary Fibrosis? Will this get worse even if he stops working with the dust?
