Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

What Do We Know About Asbestos and Cancer?

There is no question that asbestos exposure leads to cancer. Millions of people have been exposed to high amounts of the substance, and unfortunately many thousands of these people have developed some form of cancer as a result. Tragically, these asbestos-related cancers are particularly aggressive and often prove to be deadly.

If you have been diagnosed a type of cancer that you believe may have been caused by asbestos exposure, it is important that you seek more information about your legal rights. Victims may be entitled to financial compensation to address their medical bills and other concerns.

Types of Asbestos-Related Cancers

Which cancers are known to be caused by asbestos exposure? After years of research, doctors found a common tie between the following locations of cancers: the presence of asbestos fibers.

  • Lining of the lungs (Mesothelioma)
  • Lung cancer
  • Gallbladder cancer

Ongoing research into the deadly effects of exposure has revealed that the asbestos caused cancers reach beyond the chest cavity. Asbestos fibers have been found in patients with ovarian cancer, throat and esophageal cancers. Sadly, these cancers are often times diagnosed very late, resulting in a shorter predicted life-span.
