Lung Cancer

Lung CancerAsbestos and Lung Cancer

Asbestos exposure has been linked to the development of lung cancer. Studies show the same inflammatory process, which causes asbestosis can lead to cancer developing in the tissue of the lungs. Cigarette smoke often cause the effects of asbestos to be multiplied. Many smokers and former smokers who were exposed to asbestos are at increased risk.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of death in asbestos-related injuries and illnesses. The most common type of lung cancer related to asbestos is adenocarcinoma. Adenocarcinoma refers to cancer that begins in cells that line certain internal organs and that have gland-like properties

Lung Cancer Symptoms

The symptoms of lung cancer are generally a cough, which may be accompanied by blood-tinged sputum later on.

Symptoms such as chronic cough, chest pain, weight loss and persistent tiredness should be evaluated by a physician.

Many treatment options are available, particularly if diagnosed early, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

Differences

Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma are very different. Lung Cancer arises within the lungs themselves and has individualized tumor masses. Mesothelioma, however, affects the tissues surrounding the lungs.

Treatment of asbestosis and mesothelioma are different. Mesothelioma and asbestosis treatment options may be limited to easing pain and discomfort. Treatment for asbestosis focus on keeping the condition from progressing as well as easing the symptoms. Mesothelioma and lung cancer have treatment options available based on the stage the cancer and can include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
