NEW YORK, Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "We are urging US Navy Veterans, former industrial or manufacturing workers who have recently been diagnosed with any type of lung cancer to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 about possible significant financial compensation if they had heavy exposure to asbestos at work." http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
Types of Lung Cancers:
- Adenocarcinoma: Begins in the cells that form the lining of the lungs, has gland-like properties, makes up just over 30% of lung cancer diagnosed.
- Squamous cell carcinoma: Begins in the thin, flat cells that line the passages of the respiratory tract, makes up just under 30% of lung cancer diagnoses.
- Large cell carcinoma: Poorly differentiated (has none of the features that would allow it to be diagnosed as another type of NSCLC), Faster growing form of NSCLC, makes up about 9% of lung cancer diagnoses.
- Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) makes up 15-20% of all lung cancer cases. It is a type of neuroendocrine tumor with cells that are smaller in size than most other cancer cells. It is a fast-growing cancer that spreads rapidly to other parts of the body.
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center is now urging US Navy Veterans who have been now been diagnosed with any type of lung cancer to call them immediately, if the Veteran was exposed to asbestos on a US Navy ship, or at a US Navy Shipyard. Aside from the US Navy, other high-risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include power plants, manufacturing facilities, chemical plants, oil refineries, aerospace manufacturing facilities, automotive manufacturing facilities, or public utilities. Most victims of lung cancer in the United States may not know that they might be eligible for significant financial compensation if they were exposed to asbestos at their workplace.
If a victim of any type of lung cancer had long term exposure to asbestos in their workplace, the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center will direct the victim, or family members to a very capable law firm, that has an established record of achieving superior results for their clients-nationwide. For more information, lung cancer victims and their family members are urged to call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center at 800-714-0303. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
Important Note from The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center: "About 150,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. We believe about 15% of this group probably had medium to heavy exposure to asbestos at their workplace or while serving in the US Navy. We would like to help these people get compensated if possible. We need to make it clear we are not talking about mesothelioma - we are talking about people with lung cancer. The compensation we are describing could be in the tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303.
"If you have a friend or loved one with lung cancer and you know they had heavy exposure to asbestos at work or while serving in the US Navy please share our contact information with them." http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
