  • How Does Mesothelioma Develop?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive and dangerous cancer that is caused by long-term asbestos exposure. In most cases, victims are not diagnosed with mesothelioma until years after they have been exposed to asbestos. Because the signs and symptoms of this disease (shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue) all mimic other illnesses, diagnosis is further complicated.

Asbestos was widely used throughout the 1900s due to its low cost to mine, heat resistance, and versatility. Some of the common places asbestos was used included floor tiles, ceiling tiles, insulation, pipe coverings, and more. Those who worked with asbestos products are most at risk of developing mesothelioma. However, those who lived with those workers also have a higher risk of developing mesothelioma due to secondary exposure from asbestos being carried home from work on clothing.
