(PRWEB) September 17, 2013
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says,"We fear many diagnosed victims of lung cancer or mesothelioma are US Navy veterans that are not aware they may be eligible for what could be significant financial compensation. Because of a lack of information on these issues, we developed a tip sheet for the victim to ask his/her medical doctor. The goal is to obtain answers to key questions about the victims actual condition, that in turn will help the Victims Center make certain that everything possible is done to assist these individuals in receiving the best possible compensation."
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center has compiled a what-to-do list for diagnosed victims of lung cancer, or families who fear mesothelioma and a loved one exposed to asbestos while serving in the US Navy:
- The attending physician needs to examine chest x-rays for any indication of asbestos scaring, especially if the US Navy Veteran is a non smoker, or has not smoked in sometime.
- The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center is urging diagnosed victims of lung cancer to ask the attending physician if there are any visible masses or tumors on the lungs.
- If so, can a biopsy be done to examine the mass or tumor to see if it could be mesothelioma?
- Diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, lung cancer victims who were exposed to asbestos at work, or their family members can call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466, if they have any questions.
"There are currently 20 million US Navy Veterans. If they have been diagnosed with lung cancer and they were exposed to asbestos on a US Navy ship, we want to hear from them, especially if they are a nonsmoker or have not smoked for some time."
Very Important Notice: The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "If a US Navy Veteran or person had workplace exposure to asbestos, we strongly encourage a yearly chest X-ray. The X-ray should focus on excess fluid build up in the lungs, and or asbestos scaring of the lungs.
