Asbestos-related lung cancer
A disease of uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung
Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related death and is
responsible for 1.3 million deaths worldwide each year. People with asbestosis also have a high risk of developing lung cancer. The most common symptoms
of Lung Cancer are shortness of breath, coughing (including coughing up blood), and weight loss.
Lung cancer is a disease of uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung,
and can develop as a result of exposure to asbestosis, even up to 40-60 years
after the exposure occurred. The prognosis for lung cancer is poor with only
10% of people achieving a cure. However, with treatment, it is possible to
extend life for many years.
