Asbestos Lung Cancer Overview
Lung Cancer and Asbestos Introduction
Asbestos has been classified as a known human carcinogen. As a carcinogen, asbestos can cause a number of different cancers, including lung cancer and malignant mesothelioma. The two main types of lung cancer are small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer.
Although lung cancer usually develops slowly, once it occurs, the disease can spread rapidly to other parts of the body. Many studies have shown that the combination of smoking and asbestos exposure exponentially increases one’s risk of developing lung cancer.
Symptoms of lung cancer may involve:
- Blood in sputum
- Chest discomfort/pain
- Persistent cough
- Weight loss
- Wheezing/breathing trouble
Once diagnosed, treatment may incorporate surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. One’s prognosis will depend on various, individual factors.
