Mesothelioma Is Dangerous And Deadly

It is estimated that more than 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year in the United States. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, a known cancer-causing carcinogen. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used until the late 1970 and beyond. Asbestos was used in homes, vehicles, buildings, ships, and more. There are numerous ways a person could have been exposed to asbestos, including:

  • Working directly with the materials
  • Living in a home containing asbestos
  • From asbestos dust carried home on the clothing of a family member who worked with asbestos
  • By living near an asbestos producing facility

Asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested into the body and can disrupt normal cell replication, causing tumors to form. In most cases, a person does not know they have mesothelioma until decades after being exposed to asbestos.

Albany Has Been Affected By Mesothelioma

Albany County has been affected by mesothelioma cases. From 1999 to 2013, there were an estimated 289 deaths due to asbestos-related exposure. The incidence rate of asbestos-related deaths in Albany County is 6 out of every 100,000 people.

In Albany, these are the documented asbestos exposure sites:

  • ALBANY MEDICAL COLLEGE

However, just because a site is not listed here does not mean a person was not exposed to asbestos. There are many homes, businesses, warehouses, and more where people faced and continue to face exposure to asbestos.
