Have You Been Diagnosed With Mesothelioma After Working with Drywall?
Until the Second World War, plaster was used in the construction of most walls and ceilings. During the war, the demand for swift construction of buildings saw drywall and joint compound become increasingly popular. Its popularity in the building trades has not faded since.
Between the 1940s and 1980s, plaster and joint compounds were manufactured with asbestos. This deadly mineral can still be found in many buildings across New York that were constructed during that time. If you have ever worked as a drywall installer, you may have suffered asbestos exposure, increasing your risks for serious illness.

KNOWING YOUR RISKS
Asbestos exposure is linked to mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer for which there is no cure. Drywall installers who have been exposed to asbestos are at high risk for developing mesothelioma or other deadly disease including lung cancer and asbestosis. Even if exposure occurred years ago, your risk of developing an asbestos-related illness remains.
Many drywall installers do not develop an asbestos-related illness for decades following exposure. In fact, the latency period for asbestos-related cancers can last decades, even as long as 50 years. If you have worked as a drywall installer at any point in your life, it is important to inform your doctor of your risks and have regular checkups to ensure early detection. There is no cure for asbestosis or mesothelioma, but prompt treatment can improve comfort and quality of life.
