Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Lung Cancer Screening

People at a high risk of developing lung cancer are advised to get regular lung cancer screenings so that the cancer may be identified as early as possible. If lung cancer is found while still in Stage 1, the likelihood of full recovery is much higher than if the cancer is found at a later stage. Due to the direct relationship of asbestos exposure and lung cancer, it is often recommended that those who have been exposed to asbestos get regular lung cancer screenings.

If you have been diagnosed with lung cancer during a regular screening, you may be facing long-term pain and suffering due to the physical, financial, and emotional hardships of the disease. If your lung cancer can be traced back to asbestos exposure, you may be entitled to compensation.

Types of Lung Cancer Screenings

While x-rays can reveal many things about your body, the basic x-ray is not always capable of uncovering small tumors developing in the lungs. Thus, health professionals will typically use CT scans on people they presume to be at high risk of lung cancers. These scans are highly effective at showing signs of early malignant tumors.

Since frequent CT scans may actually be harmful for the cells of a body, some people instead use breath tests as an early method of detection. These tests can identify any chemicals in the breath that are caused by the development of cancerous tumors.
