Diagnosis With Brief Discussion

Diagnosis
Lung cancer associated with Asbestosis
Radiologic Findings
Bronchogenic carcinoma is estimated to develop in 20% to 25% of asbestos workers who are heavily exposed. The association between asbestos exposure and bronchogenic carcinoma is now accepted as being causal in nature. There is a typical latency period of approximately 20 years, and the greater of exposure to asbestos, and higher the risk of lung cancer.
In asbestosis patients, lung cancer must be differentiated from benign fibrotic masses and rounded atelectasis. Oblique radiograph and CT may be helpful as in this case.
