Understanding Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that has no cure. Caused by exposure to asbestos, mesothelioma has a long latency period, meaning that victims are often not diagnosed with the illness until decades after their asbestos exposure.

Asbestos was mined heavily and used widely in industrial sites, buildings, ships, automobiles, and even homes until the 1970s and beyond. Asbestos is a known carcinogen. Tiny asbestos fibers can embed themselves inside a person’s body and disrupt normal cell replication.

Asbestos exposure can occur in a variety of ways, such as:

  • Through work with asbestos products
  • Living or working around others that work with asbestos materials
  • Through living near an asbestos facility or mine

Mesothelioma is treated with chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, or a combination of the three.

How Has Mesothelioma Affected Paterson

Passaic County has been faced many deaths due to mesothelioma over the last few decades. From 1999 to 2017, there were an estimated 346 deaths caused by asbestos-related exposure. The asbestos-related death rate in Passaic County is 3.8 deaths per 100,000 people.

There are many locations in and around Paterson that have used asbestos products in the past or where these products continue to be in use today. Some of the most common exposure locations are schools, hospitals, warehouses, government buildings, office complexes, and homes. If you or a loved one has worked in construction or industrial work, you could be at high risk of developing mesothelioma.
