Understand how mesothelioma develops
Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. In the US, there are approximately new mesothelioma cases diagnosed each year. This cancer is not curable and is usually not discovered until 20 to 30 years after a person is exposed to asbestos.
Asbestos was heavily used in the US until the 1970s, mainly in industrial settings. However, asbestos was also used in many products that were used in homes and buildings, thousands of which can be found in the state of New York and New York City. Asbestos fibers, when ingested or inhaled, can embed themselves in a person’s body and cause malignant cell development. Some of the most common symptoms of mesothelioma include chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, and nausea.
Early detection of mesothelioma can improve a victim’s quality of life and lifespan after a diagnosis. For the following groups, it is important to get checked by a healthcare professional:
• those who worked with asbestos-related products
• family members of those workers who could have suffered from secondary exposure
• those who live in a home or work in a building containing asbestos products
