Asbestos-Related Lung Cancer

Experienced Asbestos Lawyers

If you or a loved one have been exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with lung cancer, seek professional legal help from The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker.

Any amount of exposure to asbestos puts people at risk for cancer or disease. There is no acceptable threshold.

Lung cancer caused by asbestos differs from mesothelioma (which develops in the lung lining). Asbestos-related lung cancer is a tumor producing cancer of the lung tissue that is categorized as either small cell cancer or non-small cell cancer.

Asbestos exposure can create a condition called asbestosis, which is not cancer, but a scarring of the lung tissue. Workers or consumers inhale asbestos fibers, which lodge in the lungs, resulting in hardened, fibrous tissue. Asbestosis predisposes people to lung cancer as shown by the fact that one in seven people with asbestosis develop lung cancer. Smokers who have been exposed to asbestos are at the highest risk for lung cancer. Similar to  mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer caused by asbestos may take decades to develop.

Asbestos Industry Workers at Risk
