Mesothelioma

In the 60's workers began to hear about the dangers of working around asbestos and the devastating effects of a cancer called Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a cancer of the cells most frequently found along the lining of the lungs is still extremely deadly today.

You may be aware of only a few products that contain asbestos as these occur primarily in industrial environments. Asbestos has excellent thermal insulating properties and is frequently used in coverings for pipes and ceiling tiles and other industrial pre fabricated construction however many other products that also contain hazardous forms of asbestos are roofing felt, pipe wrap, vinyl asbestos floor tile and millboard.

It is when asbestos becomes airborne that your chances of getting an asbestos disease like Mesothelioma are greatly increased.

Mesothelioma diagnoses over the yeats show it tends to occur between 30 to 50 years after encountering asbestos. There are three major forms of Mesothelioma and these are peritoneal Mesothelioma which effects the stomach, pleural Mesothelioma which attacks the lungs and finally pericardial Mesothelioma affects the heart.

Treatments for this serious cancer include surgery to remove cancerous areas plus aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. It is important that people with Mesothelioma seek aggressive treatment as the life expectancy of a Mesothelioma patient may be as little as six months.
