Lung Cancer, a type of cancer that begins in the lungs, is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States between men and women, and often doesn’t show signs or symptoms in its earliest stages. Exposure to smoke, secondhand smoke, radon gas, asbestos and other carcinogens are some factors that can lead to lung cancer.
Laryngeal Cancer, a type of cancer that develops in the tissue of the larynx or voice box, is one of the most common types of head and neck cancers in the United States, affecting men almost four times more than women every year. Poor nutrition, substance abuse and exposure to toxins, such as asbestos, are some of the factors that can lead to laryngeal cancer.
Pharyngeal Cancer, a type of cancer that develops in the throat, often occurs in men and women between the ages of 50 and 60. Closely related to laryngeal cancer, some of the factors that can lead to pharyngeal cancer include poor nutrition, substance abuse and exposure to toxins.
Colon Cancer, a type of cancer that begins in the large intestine, can occur at any age, although it often occurs in older adults. Substance abuse, poor nutrition, diabetes and exposure to radiation are some of the factors that can lead to colon cancer.
Mesothelioma, a type of cancer that occurs in the thin layer of tissue that covers a majority of your internal organs, often shows signs or symptoms 20 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos. An average of 3,000 or more Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year. A personal history of asbestos exposure, living with someone who is exposed to asbestos and exposure to radiation are all risk-factors that lead to mesothelioma.
Ovarian Cancer, a type of cancer that begins in the female reproductive system specific to the ovaries, often goes undetected until it reaches its later stages, spreading within the pelvis and abdomen. Older age, inherited gene mutations and estrogen replacement drugs are some of the factors that can lead to ovarian cancer.
Stomach Cancer, a type of cancer that occurs when there’s a buildup of abnormal cells that form a mass in the stomach, affects an estimated 27,000 people annually. Poor nutrition, substance abuse and pernicious anemia are some factors that can lead to stomach cancer. Recently, studies have shown that common heartburn medicines, proton pump inhibitors (PPI), may also cause stomach cancer.
Asbestosis is a disease of the lungs, a chronic respiratory disease, caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers. While note technically a cancer, asbestosis patients are likely to develop lung cancer.
