Asbestos & Mesothelioma
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a strong, dangerous fiber that was used many years ago for insulation and fireproofing purposes. When a person inhales or swallows asbestos, he/she may be exposed to a variety of diseases, such as mesothelioma. Other diseases attributed to swallowing or inhaling asbestos are asbestosis (chronic lung disease) and cancer.
What is Mesothlioma?
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that results from prolonged exposure to asbestos. Mesothelium is a very thin, double layered casing that protects each person’s vital organs. Mesothelioma adversely affects the membranes that line the chest and abdomen. When the mesothelium is damaged, a person may have difficulty breathing and moving. At this time, the only cause attributed to mesothelioma is asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma is a life-threatening illness that can lead to long-term medical complications. People who have mesothelioma will need continual medical treatment and care from physicians, specialists, and medications.
