The lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste are responsible for over a billion dollars in compensation for Navy Veterans and people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma and as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303-the incredible lawyers work overtime for their clients." www.karstvonoiste.com/
Types of Lung Cancers Include:
- 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. https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
