Asbestos Lung Cancer

Asbestos Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer is the most common type of cancer linked to asbestos exposure. It is found in people who have sustained prolonged exposure to asbestos. Lung cancer, asbestos related or otherwise, develops in the tissue that surrounds the lung, often obstructing and invading air passages. The length of time between exposure to asbestos and the occurrence of lung cancer is usually 20 to 30 years and in some cases can be longer. Inhalation of cigarette smoke and asbestos dust multiplies the effect, which increases susceptibility to developing asbestos lung cancer significantly.
