Lung Cancer Information
Exposure to asbestos can cause lung cancer. In the event you have been diagnosed with lung cancer and may have been exposed to asbestos in the past, it is important to consult with an asbestos attorney.
Persons who have been exposed to asbestos are at an increased risk for lung cancer, particularly those who smoke tobacco products. Medical and scientific studies show there is a synergistic effect between cigarette smoking and asbestos exposure in the production of lung carcinomas.
Studies have also demonstrated a dose-response relationship between asbestos exposure and lung cancer risk, which means that the greater a worker’s asbestos exposure, the greater the worker’s risk of developing lung cancer. These studies have also confirmed a long latency period between initial exposure to asbestos and manifestation of lung cancer, usually beginning more than 15 years after initial exposure.
