How Will Mesothelioma Affect You?

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that has no cure. It is aggressive and deadly, particularly because many people are not diagnosed until the late stages of the disease. This is because many of the symptoms of mesothelioma mimic those of other illnesses – shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue, abdominal pain, and more.

It is widely understood that mesothelioma is caused due to long-term exposure to asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in New Jersey and the US until the 1970s and beyond. Some of the most common products that contained asbestos included:

  • Insulation
  • Pipe covering
  • Gaskets
  • Asbestos bricks
  • Joint compound
  • Floor tiles
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Roofing products

Those who worked with asbestos products are most at risk of developing mesothelioma, though anyone they lived with could have sustained secondary exposure from asbestos fibers transported home on clothing.
