How is lung cancer caused?
Although smokers could be most at risk of developing lung cancer, inhalation of asbestos fibres is another prominent cause. Sadly, the Health and Safety Executive estimates that asbestos-related lung cancer claims the lives of approximately 2,000 people each year.
While asbestos is relatively harmless in its solid form, it has the potential to cause serious health problems when damaged or disturbed, causing fibres to become airborne. In this situation, the resulting fibres can enter the lungs where they remain – sometimes leading to scarring and thickening of the pleura.

Do you have asbestos-related lung cancer?
If you previously worked with, or around, asbestos and are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should see your GP as soon as possible and confirm your exposure to asbestos dust. They will refer you to a specialist for further diagnostic tests.
Some of the most common signs of lung cancer include:
- A persistent cough
- Feeling aches or pains when coughing or breathing
- Shortness of breath
- Weight loss or diminished appetite
- Coughing up blood
- Reduced energy or routinely feeling tired
If you were employed in an industry which has a history of high asbestos use, such as shipbuilding, construction, or plumbing, but are not exhibiting symptoms of asbestos-related disease, you should still consider undergoing regular medical tests to detect any potential health problems.
