Mesothelioma is a form of lung cancer that develops after inhaling asbestos fibers. Even microscopic fibers can lead to mesothelioma. Mesothelioma can be deadly if untreated. Because it often takes tens of years to develop, mesothelioma can be developed unknowingly as a person ages. Of course, the longer a person is exposed to asbestos, the greater their chances of contracting mesothelioma.
Because mesothelioma takes so long to develop, a delayed onset of the disease is common. Risk to developing mesothelioma is also increased with age.
Prolonged asbestos exposure is commonly attributed to the onset of mesothelioma. Exposure to asbestos is not limited to the worker that is directly exposed to asbestos fibers, as the fibers can get trapped in clothing and carried elsewhere.
Some occupations that have a history of asbestos exposure include (but are not limited to):
If you have any asbestos-exposure-related disease such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis, there is a good possibility that you were exposed to asbestos. Asbestos was known to be hazardous for many years by insulation manufacturers, but a business decision was made which prevented the public from being warned.
You may have a right to compensation for your asbestos related injuries. Compensation won in such cases can pay for cancer treatment or pain & suffering.
