Medical Dictionary: Asbestos cancer

Medical dictionaries: Medical dictionary, Medical malpractice dictionary, Medical Acronymns/Abbreviations
Asbestos cancer: Another name for Mesothelioma.
Asbestos cancer (condition): Type of lung cancer associated with asbestos.
Asbestos cancer (condition): Mesothelioma is a relatively rare cancer, that is usually associated with asbestos. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause mesothelioma even years later.

Currently, mesothelioma is an active area of lawsuits and litigation. The area of law is not usually medical malpractice, because mesothelioma liability is usually related to the asbestos exposure, involving legal areas such as product liability, wrongful death, or other liability. However, medical malpractice for mesothelioma can occur due to failure to diagnose mesothelioma in its early stages. Such delayed diagnosis of mesothelioma worsens its prognosis. Always seek qualified legal advice about malpractice or other law, as the area is very complex.
