What Is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that has no cure. For most victims, they do not even know they have the disease until decades after they have been exposed to mesothelioma. That is because this illness has a long latency period, and the symptoms often mimic those of other diseases.

Those most at risk for mesothelioma are those with or around an asbestos mining site or with the following asbestos-related products:

  • Insulation
  • Pipe covering
  • Gaskets
  • Asbestos packing
  • Refractory
  • Asbestos bricks
  • Transite boards
  • Joint compound
  • Floor tiles
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Roofing products

Family members of those who worked with asbestos are also at risk of mesothelioma through secondary exposure of asbestos particles. These particles, when ingested or inhaled, are a known cancer-causing carcinogen. They embed themselves in a person’s body and cause malignant cell development over time.
