What esophageal cancer diagnoses qualify me for compensation?
Like the majority of malignant diseases, esophageal cancer has multiple types depending on the particularities of the malignant cells involved in the tumors. As a result, your doctor will give you a specific diagnosis if you have esophageal cancer, which may not actually contain the words "esophageal cancer". For this reason, we have compiled a list of all the diagnoses that refer to esophageal cancer that you can receive if you have it:
- squamous cell carcinoma
- small cell carcinoma
If you have one of these diagnoses, please contact our legal team as soon as possible, as you may be eligible for compensation. Asbestos exposure can easily cause esophageal cancer, as the repeated ingestion of toxic fibers can result in this disease. The compensation our resourceful attorneys will help you obtain from asbestos trust funds, as well as from the VA, if you are a veteran, will prove to be of great help when it comes to your medical expenses.
Esophageal cancer misdiagnosis and asbestos exposure work history
Misdiagnosis for esophageal cancer is so common today that these serious diseases can be mistaken for a mere common cold or a less severe condition such as pneumonia.
If you have a history of occupational asbestos exposure, it is of utmost importance to keep a close eye on your health and seek medical help in the event you notice any bothersome or even common symptoms.
With a history of asbestos exposure, these patients most of the time will have asbestos fibers present in the lungs also, even if there are no symptoms yet. The asbestos screening makes it possible for these fibers to be found. Our staff and attorneys also advise you to look for multiple medical opinions, since many of the most experienced specialists may give a wrong diagnosis. It is crucial for you to mention during your medical examination that you used to work with asbestos, as this will give your doctor a different perspective on your symptoms.
