Mesothelioma Is A Dangerous Form Of Cancer

We know that approximately 3,000 new 000 new mesothelioma cases are diagnosed each year in this county. Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer caused by long-term exposure to asbestos fibers. Asbestos was heavily used in the US until the late 1970s and can still be found in many buildings and homes today. Those most at risk of developing mesothelioma include:

  • Those who worked directly with asbestos products
  • Family members of those who worked with asbestos products (through secondary exposure from asbestos on clothing)
  • Those who live in homes containing asbestos

There is no cure for mesothelioma, though early detection can improve a person’s lifespan and quality of life after their diagnosis.
