When Lung Cancer Is Caused By Asbestos Exposure
When an individual has inhaled asbestos particles, the fibers can lodge internally and eventually lead to a variety of devastating diseases, including lung cancer. Lung cancer caused by asbestos can take many forms. Mesothelioma, another cancer caused by asbestos exposure, can also be mistaken for lung cancer.

In most cases, asbestos-related lung cancers will occur decades after an individual has been exposed to asbestos. Symptoms of lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure are the same as symptoms of lung cancer not caused by asbestos exposure. Individuals may experience a persistent dry, wheezing cough and enlarged lymph nodes in the airways. Other symptoms may include difficulty in breathing and chest pain. A doctor can perform tests to make an accurate diagnosis. It is important to share your work history at high-risk job sites with your physician.
