Asbestos Cancer

Have you been diagnosed with mesotheloma?

Asbestosis is a distinct type of lung cancer caused by the occupational hazard of asbestos exposure and is known as Asbestosis. In most cases, asbestos cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos and affects the lining of the lungs. At present, treatment is limited to surgical removal of the damaged tissue, often the right lung where asbestos poisoning often occurs first.

A most unfortunate aspect of Asbestosis is that the effects often show up some twenty years after the asbestos exposure. The internet gives us a special opportunity to be informed and to find medical advice from a specialist in asbestos cancer and get help for patients diagnosed with mesothelioma.
