Asbestos exposure and mesothelioma
November 12, 2012
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month – and a good time to ask yourself a serious question: Could your house be giving you lung cancer? Not only is asbestos – which is found in most homes built more than 40 years ago – linked to lung cancer, it could also cause another very dangerous condition known as mesothelioma.
Jonathan Daniel, M.D., thoracic surgeon at Providence Cancer Center, speaks to the risks of asbestos exposure and the symptoms and treatment for mesothelioma.
