What Is Mesothelioma

Exposure to asbestos is the cause of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer that can take years to develop.  The inhalation of asbestos fibers has been proven to change DNA and cause tumors in the protective linings of the heart, lungs, stomach, and testes.  The tumors can be benign but are often malignant, resulting in respiratory problems, pain in the chest and/or abdomen, fatigue, shortness of breath, and fluid around the lungs known as pleural effusion.

There is only one known cause of mesothelioma and that is exposure to asbestos.  Asbestos has been used in many fields even though it has been known for more than 100 years that exposure can lead to cancer and other health issues.  The asbestos particles ingested and inhaled change DNA structure over time and can cause tumors in the body.  Many people with a work history in construction, shipyards, oil refineries, and the military, including electricians, pipe fitters and firefighters are at risk. Thousands of new cases are being diagnosed each year.
