Cancer: Lung Message Board


Cancer: Lung Board Index


Hi, this place I work.
They were putting in new tiles and I was watching the place.
The tiles were from the 50s. They were made with asbestos.
If I breathed in some of the asbestos. The smoke that comes out when you remove the tiles.
Is there anything I can take for this?
I remember reading this stuff can cause cancer.
Are there any prescriptions drugs for this.

Well, I would say its important to not to panic first of all, however I agree with Sheryl, this is not something where you want to try to find a way around it or just take a "wait and see approach". See your doc as soon as possible to determine to what extent (if any) the Asbestos may have affected you, and what possible path to take to reduce its effects. At this point I would not be so worried about cancer as much as lung damage and things like Asbestosis.
