Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive cancer that can develop in the lining of the lung, abdomen, and heart. Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma. It can take decades for mesothelioma to develop after asbestos exposure has occurred.
Who can be exposed to Asbestos?
Workplace exposure is the most common type of exposure. Some occupations have a greater risk of exposure. Those include construction workers, auto mechanics, shipyard workers and other types of industrial setting occupations.
However, you can also be exposed to asbestos through something called secondhand exposure. This occurs when an individual who worked with or around asbestos inadvertently exposes the family at home. Asbestos can be carried home on work clothes, hair and other items taken to work and brought back home at the end of the workday.
Medical Treatment for Mesothelioma
There are several treatment options for mesothelioma. The type of mesothelioma and the stage of your cancer at the time of diagnosis determine what types of treatment are available. There are specialists across the country that focus on specific types of mesothelioma and science and treatment options are regularly advancing through clinical trials.
