Symptoms of lung cancer may include: a persistent cough, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, chest pain, hoarseness, unexplained weight loss, bone pain, and headaches. [Source: Mayoclinic.org] If you are experiencing these symptoms, please consult with your treating physicians.
Smoking is not the only cause of lung cancer. There are many causes of lung cancer. ASBESTOS ITSELF IS A WELL-ESTABLISHED CAUSE OF LUNG CANCER. People exposed to asbestos alone have a 5x greater chance of developing lung cancer. There is a latency period of 30-40 years between the time of exposure and the development of lung cancer. If you quit smoking, even after smoking for many years, you can significantly reduce your risks of developing lung cancer.

Both smoking and asbestos exposure together may have played a role in the development of your lung cancer.
