Exposure to asbestos increases the risk of developing lung cancer. A very important point is that asbestos exposure and smoking act together to produce a huge increase in risk of lung cancer in people exposed to both hazards. Fortunately this means that people who have been exposed to asbestos can greatly reduce the risk of lung cancer by not smoking.
Unfortunately the damage done by asbestos and/or smoking cannot be reversed. Your doctor will advise you on the best treatment for you as an individual whether it be surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and/or medication.
