Mesothelioma Is a Dangerous Illness

Approximately 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year in this country. This rare but aggressive form of cancer is not curable. However, early detection of the illness can increase a victim’s lifespan and quality of life after a diagnosis.

Those most at risk to asbestos-related mesothelioma include anyone who:

  • Worked with asbestos products
  • Lived in a building containing asbestos products
  • Lived with someone who worked with asbestos products
  • Worked or lived near an asbestos facility

In many cases, decades pass between a person working around asbestos and being diagnosed with mesothelioma. The symptoms of this illness mimic those of other diseases, making mesothelioma harder to detect. While not everyone who has been exposed to asbestos will develop mesothelioma, even those with short-term exposures in the past have developed the illness.

Mesothelioma Affects Utica and Surrounding Areas

Mesothelioma has affected Oneida County and the surrounding areas. In this county, there have been an estimated 194 asbestos-related deaths from 1999 to 2013. The incidents rate of deaths from asbestos-related exposure is 5.5 deaths per 100,000 people in the county.

There are no documented asbestos job sites that have been discovered in Utica, but that does not mean people here have not faced asbestos exposure. Utica has a rich industrial history, and asbestos products were used in our buildings and homes on a regular basis. Many residents of Utica may not even know they were exposed until they are diagnosed with mesothelioma.
