Exposure to asbestos can affect your kidneys. Discuss your situation with an asbestos lawyer.
Each year in the US, thousands of people are diagnosed with kidney cancer. Asbestos exposure can be a factor in the development of kidney cancer - when cancers more typically associated with asbestos like mesothelioma or lung cancer spread, the kidneys can be at risk for developing metastatic tumors as well.
Our attorneys are able to help people if their asbestos exposure led to cancer of the lungs and the cancer later spread to the kidney.
Asbestos is a group of toxic fibers that, when ingested or inhaled, has been known to cause serious illness and disease such as throat and kidney cancer, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.
Workers in asbestos manufacturing or producing industries including those in the steel, mining, insulation, roofing, and flooring industries are at increased risk of developing kidney cancer.
Symptoms of kidney cancer
There are a number of symptoms of kidney cancer including, but not limited to:
