Osbestos lung cancer is caused by lots of exposure of toxic asbestos fibers. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), half of occupational cancer deaths are caused by asbestos. Osbestos lung cancer is typically diagnosed at a late stage because it takes decades, about 15 years to 35 years to develop. But it only takes months for the cancer to spread. Here are the causes and the treatmentsof osbestos lung cancer, which hopefully make us more alert.
THE CAUSES OF ASBESTOS LUNG CANCER
Just as its name,asbestos lung cancer is caused lots of exposure of asbestos. Asbestos is natural mineral which is owned and used since the late 1800s by many companies and manufacturers in North America. If the product contained in asbestos is disturbed, the microscopic fibers are released into the air. If this microcospic fibers are inhaled, they are trapped in the lungs. For a long period of time, the inhalation of this asbestos is accumulated and causes critical health problems. Not only causing critical health problems, lots of inhalation of asbestos can also cause inflammation and scarring.
The duration and the concentration of the exposure of asbestos have important roles in developing lung cancer. The higher duration and concentration asbestos fibers exposure, the higher risk of lung cancer. After decades, this asbestos exposure not only cause asbestos lung cancer, but it can also form tumor by irritating and damaging cells in body. It depends on a person’s genetic, health, and habit.
For those who smoke, it will increase the risk of the development of asbestos lung cancer. Smoking will aggravate potential symptoms which are related to asbestos. Other factors which affects on the development of asbestos lung cancer are bad life style and dietary, and also high stress.
