Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, most commonly begins in the cells lining the stomach. It is common for stomach cancer to spread to other nearby lymph nodes and through the wall of the stomach into other organs such as the colon, pancreas, spleen and liver. When products containing asbestos are disturbed, tiny asbestos fibers are released into the air and inhaled or swallowed by workers or inhabitants in the area. Over a period of time those fibers can become trapped in the tissues lining the stomach causing cancer.

Most individuals don’t start experiencing the symptoms of stomach cancer for a number of years after they were exposed to asbestos. Victims of stomach cancer who were exposed to asbestos have rights when it comes to receiving compensation for their suffering. The experienced attorneys of Mazur & Kittel, PLLC, can help fight for your rights against the companies that knowingly used and exposed workers to the harmful effects of asbestos, a known carcinogen.
