Why Is Mesothelioma So Dangerous?

Mesothelioma is a dangerous cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. In most cases, victims do not develop signs or symptoms of this illness until years after they have been exposed to asbestos. There is no cure for mesothelioma, though early detection can increase the lifespan and quality of life of a person diagnosed.

Asbestos was heavily used in the US throughout the 1900s, particularly in the following products:

  • Insulation
  • Pipe covering
  • Floor tiles
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Roofing product

Once touted at the “magic mineral,” asbestos is a known carcinogen. The fibers can be inhaled or ingested and cause malignant cell mutation in the body over time. Most at risk are those who worked directly with asbestos-related products, their family members, and those who live in homes containing asbestos products.

How Has Mesothelioma Affected Brooklyn
