Three little-known dangers of asbestos exposure

These days, comprehensive advertising campaigns have helped spread the word about mesothelioma and asbestos. However, there are several other diseases that are also associated with asbestos -- and many people don't realize it.

Here are some of the other diseases that are associated with asbestos exposure:

Laryngeal cancer

Sometimes, the asbestos fibers that people inhaled never make it to their lungs. Instead, researchers say that the tiny fibers may become embedded in the tissues of some people's voice boxes, eventually causing laryngeal cancer. The relationship wasn't established with absolute certainty until 2012.

Clubbed fingers

Clubbed fingers, which involve fingertips that become misshapen and chronically swollen, is a side-effect of asbestosis. Asbestosis is a type of lung disease caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers. As the lungs become more damaged, patients have a harder time breathing and often need oxygen. Clubbed fingers develop as the disease progresses and serve as an indication that the condition has grown quite severe.

Ovarian cancer

Only three percent of women who are diagnosed with cancer have ovarian cancer -- yet the disease causes the most deaths out of any type of reproductive organ cancer in women. In many cases, women with ovarian cancer may have been exposed to asbestos by their fathers, who brought the fibers home from work on their clothing. Others may have been exposed through their use of talc power as a feminine hygiene product.

If you suspect that you or a loved one may be suffering from any of these conditions, seek treatment as soon as possible. Early treatment is the best way to obtain positive results when it comes to cancer treatment or treatment of related conditions.

In addition, it's important to seek guidance regarding the availability of compensation for the victims of asbestos-related diseases. Effective treatment takes time and money, and the compensation that's available may be able to help you through the process.
