Mesothelioma is a rare, incurable, asbestos-related cancer. While asbestos exposure is dangerous in any capacity, mesothelioma typically is found in individuals who have experienced long-term exposure to this harmful material. This illness causes a malignant tumor to develop from asbestos fibers that have been inhaled. Most diagnosed cases are pleural mesothelioma, which forms on the lining of the lungs, however, mesothelioma tumors can form on the linings of the abdomen, heart, and testes.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

  • Dry cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Respiratory complications
  • Chest or abdominal pain
  • Fever or night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness in the muscles

Lung Cancer

Asbestos lung cancer is caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. While only a small percentage of lung cancer cases are primarily linked to asbestos, asbestos exposure can increase the risk of developing lung cancer in tobacco smokers. 

Lung cancer is aggressive and is the leading cause of cancer related death in the United States. This cancer claims more American lives than breast, prostate and colon cancer combined. Lung cancer caused by asbestos is responsible for approximately 6,000 deaths in the U.S. every year. Lung cancer can take 15-35 years to develop after individuals are exposed to asbestos.

Symptoms of Lung Cancer

  • Persistent cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest discomfort 
  • Hoarseness or wheezing
  • Coughing up blood
  • Fatigue 
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Recurring respiratory infections

Throat Cancer

Throat cancer refers to cancer affecting both the Pharynx, the tube through which we swallow, and the Larynx, that contains our vocal cords. Exposure to asbestos has been linked with an increased risk of developing throat cancer in either of these places. This is a difficult cancer that often comes with delayed symptoms. Those exposed to asbestos should have regular cancer screenings. 

Symptoms of Throat Cancer

  • Persistent cough.
  • Changes in your voice
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Ear pain
  • Recurring or chronic sore throat
  • Weight loss

Esophageal Cancer

Asbestos fibers are microscopic and can easily be inhaled by those working around it. When asbestos fibers make their way into your body they become trapped. Over time these fibers can cause many health problems, including esophageal cancer. If you worked with asbestos and have developed this rare and devastating cancer, reach out to our team to learn more about the compensation you may be entitled to.

Symptoms of Esophageal Cancer

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Weight loss
  • Hoarseness
  • Persistent cough 
  • Indigestion 
  • Heartburn
  • Vomiting

Stomach Cancer

When asbestos is ingested, dangerous fibers can travel throughout the digestive tract. These fibers will become trapped, which leads to inflammation, internal tearing, and in some cases the development of cancer. Stomach cancer may take decades to develop after exposure to asbestos. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with stomach cancer after working with asbestos, our team can help you.

Symptoms of Stomach Cancer

  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss 
  • Abdominal pain
  • Feeling full 
  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting, with or without blood
  • Swelling or fluid build-up in the abdomen
  • Blood in the stool
  • Fatigue and weakness

Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is a form of cancer that begins in the large intestine and has been linked to asbestos exposure. Many individuals with colon cancer experience no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. When symptoms do appear, they’ll likely vary, depending on the cancer’s size and location in your large intestine. If you have been exposed to asbestos, regular cancer screenings are recommended as it may take decades for cancers to develop. Catching cancer in its earliest stages provides better treatment options.

Symptoms of Colon Cancer

  • Changes in bowel habits or the consistency of your stool
  • Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool
  • Abdominal discomfort including cramps, gas, or pain
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Weight loss
