It has come to light over the last few years that radon gas is toxic and extremely dangerous as well. Radon has no odor, no taste, and can’t be seen. The best way to determine if you have radon in your home is before you go to get tested for radon gas poisoning. If there are radon levels in your home, then you can get a reputable company to perform a radon mitigation system installation for you and take care of the levels that way. Many people still want to know the signs and symptoms of radon gas poisoning, of course. Read on below so that you know what to look for.
Since this gas is odorless, most symptoms are found in the lungs where they can’t be seen. However, having constant chest congestion, problems breathing, coughing, wheezing, and heavy breathing can be signs of lung cancer and need to be looked at right away. That is not to say that you have lung cancer just because you have these symptoms, but if you have been exposed to radon gas, it is best to be checked out just to make sure.
What Can You Do?
Once you have been diagnosed with lung cancer, there isn’t much that can be done. However, if you haven’t, you need to get the radon levels in your home under control as soon as possible. This can be done by having a reputable company come and do a radon mitigation system installation right away.
These are just a few of the signs and symptoms that you need to watch for if you have been exposed to radon gas in your home. If you have any of these symptoms, please contact your doctor right away.
