Asbestos-Related Colon Cancer
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Colon Cancer or an Asbestos-related disease, we are here to help you file a claim.
A history of asbestos exposure is a common thread in patients diagnosed with colon cancer.
The colon is located in the lower part of the digestive system.
The rectum is located in the last few inches of colon that leads to the anus.
With Asbestos-related cancer the colon and rectum may suffer both from malignancies.
Colon cancer has been shown to have a higher incidence rate in patients who were exposed to asbestos.
Asbestos-related Colon cancer symptoms are difficult to diagnose:
- blood in your stool
- change in bowel habits
- narrow stools
- unexplained stomach discomfort
- unexplained weight loss
There may be no symptoms that you have asbestos-related colon cancer.
If and when symptoms do appear, they are can be confused with other gastrointestinally related issues.
Asbestos exposure increases the risk of developing stomach cancer, colon cancer, rectal cancer, and colorectal cancer.
Screening for Asbestos-related colon cancer should be a consideration for those exposed to asbestos and everyone over age 50.
