Asbestos Related Lung Cancer

It is estimated the number of people diagnosed with asbestos related lung cancer each year in the UK is similar to the number of people diagnosed with mesothelioma. In other words each year in the UK 4000 victims are diagnosed with a fatal condition because of asbestos exposure.
Asbestos-related lung cancer as the name suggests develops in the lung following long term exposure, unlike mesothelioma which can onset from inhaling a single fibre. Another difference between the conditions is that mesothelioma can develop on the lining of the lung, known as the pleura, or in lining of the abdomen, known as the peritoneum.
Smoking increases the risk of developing lung cancer and it is true to say smokers who are exposed to asbestos have a greatly increased chance of developing asbestos related lung cancer
