Once you’ve been exposed, the damage has been done. Due to the time delay from exposure to diagnosis, the tragic side effects and symptoms may not arise until decades after exposure.
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that attacks the membranes around the lungs, heart, and abdominal cavity. Most victims only notice symptoms of mesothelioma after it is already terminal. Typically, a mesothelioma diagnosis comes many years after the actual asbestos exposure. Symptoms usually include shortness of breath, chest pain, or both.

Although it is not the most common type of cancer, lung cancer is the deadliest. Although mesothelioma is the most common asbestos-related cancer, there are a number of different forms of cancer associated with asbestos exposure. As well as lung cancer, asbestos has been linked to several additional cancer diagnoses. Asbestos-related lung cancer is caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers; the fibers get caught in the lining of the lungs, causing cells to mutate and become cancerous.
Diagnosing asbestos-related cancers and conditions can be difficult; most of the symptoms closely mirror and resemble the symptoms of less serious respiratory complications. Some of the typical symptoms include shortness of breath, chronic coughing, and chest pain. An MRI and/or CT scan is necessary to accurately diagnose asbestos-related cancer.
