About Asbestos Lung Cancer

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous mineral that occurs naturally in the earth. During the 1900s, before scientists knew of the dangers of asbestos, manufacturers used it heavily in the production of insulation, roofing materials, automotive parts, shipbuilding materials, and more. People who work with or around asbestos, or those living near asbestos mines, are at risk of developing several asbestos-related diseases. One such disease is lung cancer.

Asbestos lung cancer is different from pleural mesothelioma, although they are similar. They can both cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, coughing, and fatigue. Asbestos lung cancer develops in the actual lung, while pleural mesothelioma is cancer that forms in the lining of the lung or the mesothelium. Asbestos exposure is the exclusive cause of mesothelioma, while environmental factors and tobacco use can influence the development of asbestos lung cancer.

Most asbestos lung cancer cases don’t occur until 10 to 30 years after exposure to asbestos. Upon diagnosis, treatment options can include surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. Asbestos lung cancer comes with a slightly higher survival rate (short-term and long-term) than pleural mesothelioma. Victims who receive asbestos lung cancer diagnoses should discuss their cases with a knowledgeable asbestos lawyer. Asbestos exposure is an act of negligence that many employers could have avoided with due care. It may be possible to seek damage recovery through an asbestos lawsuit.

Learn Your Rights as an Asbestos Lung Cancer Victim

Asbestos-related diseases almost always stem from someone’s negligence. A product manufacturer that shouldn’t have used the harmful minerals or an employer who failed to prevent ingestion of asbestos with proper safety equipment could be legally responsible. Asbestos is such a well-known carcinogen that trusts and benefit programs exist to provide victims with enough money to pay for past and future medical bills, lost wages, wrongful death, and pain and suffering. With help from an asbestos lung cancer lawyer, you can fight for your portion of this compensation as someone with asbestos lung cancer.
