Understanding A Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos fiber. Asbestos was heavily used until the late 1970s, though its use continued into the 1980s and 1990s. Asbestos was used primarily in:

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

Asbestos fibers that enter the body through inhalation or ingestion can result in the growth of malignant cells. In many cases, victims do not begin to show signs or symptoms of mesothelioma until decades after they have been exposed to asbestos. Mesothelioma is an aggressive type of cancer, though early detection can help increase life expectancy and quality of life after a diagnosis. Treatment includes chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
