How Does Mesothelioma Affect Victims?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that is widely understood to be caused by exposure to asbestos, a mineral that was widely used throughout New Jersey and the US until the late 1970s and beyond. Mesothelioma has no cure, and victims are often not diagnosed until decades after they were exposed to asbestos.

Asbestos was once called the “magic mineral” due to its low cost to mine, its heat resistance, and the ability to use it in many products. This included insulation, pipe coverings, ceiling tiles, floor tiles, and more. Asbestos could be found and is still found today in buildings, homes, ships, automobiles, and more.

Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos fibers embedding themselves in a person’s body and disrupting normal cell replication processes. This cancer is treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, or a combination of the three.
