Understanding Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare but aggressive form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos exposure. Asbestos was widely used in the US throughout the 1900s in a wide array of products. Asbestos was called the “magic mineral” because of its resistance to heat and durability. It was commonly used in insulation, pipe coverings, floor tiles, ceiling tiles, and more. Asbestos fibers that are inhaled can embed themselves in a person’s respiratory tract. Over time, these asbestos fibers increase a person’s chance of developing mesothelioma.

There is no cure for mesothelioma. Treating this cancer often involved surgery to remove the mesothelioma tumors, chemotherapy, as well as radiation treatment. Early detection of the disease increases survival rates and quality of life in the remaining years following diagnosis.

Those most at risk of developing mesothelioma are those who worked n industrial jobs. Family members of these workers were also at risk of secondary exposure due to asbestos on work clothing. Anyone living in areas where asbestos was mined or those in a home containing asbestos are also at risk of developing mesothelioma.

How Is Buffalo Affected By Mesothelioma?

There have been an estimated 1,133 asbestos-related deaths in Erie County, NY from 1999 to 2013. The asbestos-related death rate per 100,000 people in this county is 8.


These are the known sites, but that does not mean they are the only places a person in Buffalo could have been exposed to asbestos.
