Lung cancer is a reality for workers in some industries

Some people work in conditions that might expose them to an increased risk of certain diseases. Occupational illnesses are serious conditions that can be debilitating. They can also kill. It is imperative that workers who are around these conditions be provided ways to keep the risks down.

Lung cancer is one of the issues that might come with some jobs. It is the No. 1 killing cancer and it affects men and women equally. Many people think of lung cancer as a smokers disease but even nonsmokers can suffer from this condition. One risk that workers face is when they work near smokers, such as servers who work in the smoking section at a restaurant.

Lung cancer doesn't always show up as an obvious problem. Sometimes, the signs are subtle. You might develop a light cough that seems like an irritation instead of a sign of a life threatening issue. The cough might get worse and you may notice that it is harder to breathe when you haven't done much physical activity.

While cigarette smoke is the top cause of lung cancer, it isn't the only one. Workers who are exposed to radon or asbestos might also suffer from lung cancer. Unfortunately, this disease can be difficult to treat. Even when it is treatable, there might be residual effects that last for the rest of the person's life.

Workers who are stricken with lung cancer due to work conditions might decide to seek compensation for the cost of medical care and the other financial impacts of the condition. Learning about the options might be beneficial so you can determine what you are going to do.
