Asbestos Lung Cancer Claims
Asbestos Lung Cancer
Asbestos lung cancer is a rare type of lung cancer, which is the most common cause of cancer deaths in the U. S. It is estimated that more than 4,800 deaths each year are linked to asbestos lung cancer. Asbestos lung cancer is usually diagnosed at a late stage of development because of the long latency period of 10-50 years. Asbestos is estimated to account for between 3,500-8,500 new cases of lung cancer cases each year. Asbestos Lung Cancer is typically diagnosed using a needle biopsy and examining phlegm (spit) samples.
