Mesothelioma Is A Dangerous Cancer

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that has no cure. Victims who have been exposed to asbestos or asbestos-related products are most at risk of developing mesothelioma. There are around 3,000 new mesothelioma cases diagnosed each year in the US.

Asbestos was heavily used until the late 1970s, and it is still present in many homes and buildings in the city. Those most at risk of developing mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure include:

  • Anyone who worked in or around asbestos products (industrial workers, asbestos miners).
  • Family members of those who worked with these products could have been exposed to fibers on clothing.
  • Those who live in or work in structures containing asbestos products.

In some cases, decades will pass from the time a person is exposed to the time they are diagnosed with mesothelioma. There are various types of this illness, and common symptoms include fatigue, chest pain, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, and more.

Mesothelioma Has Affected Long Island

Nassau County has been particularly affected by mesothelioma cases over the last few decades. From 1999 to 2013, there were an estimated 1,135 deaths from asbestos-related exposure. The incidence of death in this county from asbestos-related exposure is 5.6 deaths per 100,000 people.
