Exposure Points

After receiving a medical diagnosis of lung cancer, mesothelioma or asbestosis, many people's first reaction is disbelief or bewilderment over how they could have developed the condition. In the case of older people, it may have been many years since they retired. Younger workers still on the job may wonder how they came into contact with asbestos or silica dust.

The fact is, points of exposure to asbestos may lie many years - even decades - in the past. The microscopic silica fibers imbed themselves in lung tissue permanently. It doesn't take prolonged exposure to the dust to breathe in billions of fibers. Some people can develop respiratory conditions after just a few years, while others might take decades.

If you or an elderly family member lives in the Pittsburgh area and has been diagnosed with lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis or silicosis, don't assume it is only "age-related" or bad medical luck. There is every possibility that it may be the result of previous exposure to asbestos, even years in the past and, yes, even after smoking cigarettes.
