With Lung Cancer Awareness Month approaching, it is a good time to focus on this disease that claims the lives of more Americans than any other type of cancer. As noted by the
Centers for Disease Control, over 203,000 people were diagnosed with cancer in 2007 (the most recent statistics available), and over 158,000 died of the disease that year.
Lung cancer has many risk factors, including occupational (work exposures) to asbestos and/or diesel fume exhaust. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with lung cancer and have been exposed to asbestos or diesel fume exhaust, please give us a call at 1-800-374-2144 or contact us through email.
