Cancers that are associated with exposure to asbestos

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

Asbestos exposure has been linked to several types of cancer including mesothelioma, lung cancer, laryngeal cancer, and ovarian cancer. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the linings of the chest and abdomen, and it occurs more commonly among individuals exposed to asbestos. Lung cancer and laryngeal cancer are also associated with prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers, which can penetrate deep into the respiratory tract and cause damage to the cells over time. Additionally, recent studies have suggested a link between asbestos exposure and increased risk of ovarian cancer. Therefore, it is essential to exercise caution around asbestos-containing materials and take appropriate measures to protect oneself from the potential harmful effects of asbestos exposure.
