Mesothelioma Can Be Devastating

There are various types of mesothelioma, and all of them can be caused by asbestos-related exposure. Asbestos fibers were heavily mined and used in industrial sites, ships and shipyards, buildings, homes, and vehicles until the late 1970s (and beyond). Asbestos is a known cancer-causing carcinogen. When asbestos fibers are released in the air, they can be inhaled and swallowed and work their way into the body. Asbestos fibers can lead to the formation of cancerous cells.

In most cases, it takes decades from the time of exposure to the cancer forming. There is no cure for this disease, though early detection lengthens a person’s lifespan and quality of life after the diagnosis. There are approximately 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma diagnosed each year in the US, though many others may have the disease and not realize it.

Mesothelioma Cases In Schenectady

Mesothelioma from asbestos exposure happens in our country. From 1999 to 2013, there have been an estimated 142 deaths from asbestos-related exposure. The asbestos-related incidence rate for Schenectady County is 6.2 deaths per 100,000 people.

Exposure cases in Schenectady happened (and continue to occur) in a variety of locations. We have a rich history of development and industry in this county, and asbestos was used heavily in this area throughout the 1900s. If you worked or lived with someone who worked in an industrial setting, renovated a home containing asbestos materials, or served in the military, you have a higher risk of developing mesothelioma due to asbestos-related exposure.
