What is asbestos-related lung cancer?
Lung cancer (bronchial carcinoma) usually begins in the lungs but may also begin in the trachea, bronchioles or alveoli (lung air sacs). It has similarities, but is different from mesothelioma or asbestosis. The early stages of asbestos-related lung cancer may be asymptomatic, which means victims experience no symptoms.
Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli has more than 30 years of experience helping asbestos-related lung cancer patients and their families. We cater to our clients in every state, and we pursue the compensation they deserve for asbestos-related injuries and damages.
Symptoms of Bronchial Carcinoma
The two most common types of lung cancer are small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which is more common in nonsmokers. Symptoms and warning signs of lung cancer include:
- Shortness of breath
- Persistent coughing
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest pain and restriction
- Loss of appetite
- Unexplained weight loss
- Night sweats or fever
As with any disease or cancer, early detection and diagnosis are vital for successful treatment. We provide free case evaluations to people across the country, which include detailed discussions of their current status of diagnosis, related medical history, when and where initial asbestos exposure occurred and legal options. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical examination from a physician or oncologist right away.
