How Does Mesothelioma Happen?

Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer that is caused by long-term exposure to asbestos. Asbestos was commonly used in the US throughout the 1900s due to its low cost, durability, and heat resistance.

There are approximately 3,000 new mesothelioma cases are diagnosed each year in the US. Those who have died or are suffering from this illness were likely exposed due to:

  • Working around asbestos
  • Living with someone who worked with asbestos and brought the fibers home on their clothing
  • Living in a home with asbestos products
  • Living near an asbestos production facility or mine

In many cases, mesothelioma victims are not diagnosed until 20 to 30 years after their asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma is not curable but can be treated with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

How Has Mesothelioma Affected Troy?

Residents in Rensselaer County have suffered from mesothelioma cases and continue to do so. From 1999 to 2017, there were an estimated 245 deaths due to asbestos-related exposure here. The rate of death in this country from asbestos-related illness is 8 deaths per 100,000 people, one of the highest rates in the state.

In Troy, the water filtration plant’s main building has been uncovered as an asbestos exposure site. However, there are many other places around the city where people could have been exposed to asbestos. We have an industrial history, and asbestos was heavily used here for decades.
