Mesothelioma - the Asbestos Cancer


Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that starts in the tissue that surrounds and protects various organs in the body, including the lungs, heart and stomach. This tissue  known as  the mesothelium produces a protective fluid that allows the organs to move around freely.
 
The tragedy of Mesothelioma is that it is a disease that is almost 100% preventable. The only known cause is due to exposure to the deadly mineral Asbestos. Those who come down with Mesothelioma have inhaled particles of asbestos dust as the asbestos degrades. The asbestos irriates and eats away at the lining of your lungs and  other organs.  In response, the tissues develop a deadly cancer.
 
What is asbestos? Asbestos is a mineral fiber that has been used commonly in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire-retardant.
 
Where did the asbestos exposure come from? 
 
First, the workplace. Workers were exposed in factories, at shipyards, in mines, for the US military, as engineers, as pipefitters, as steel workers, as auto mechanics, and in so many other professions. Asbestos dust as clouds of white powder, were inhaled by the workers.
 
Second, the home. This same dust was also carried home on the clothes of the these many workers, bringing the exposure to their spouses and children. Eventually the dust becamse a part of the home environment recirculated by heating systems in houses, not to mention in offices and schools...
 
As the danger of Asbestos in relation to Mesothelioma reached the public consciousness, the EPA and CPSC began banning several asbestos products. Manufacturers also voluntarily limited uses of asbestos. This has removed much of  the danger of asbestos in the workplace.
 
But asbestos is still commonly found in older homes and schools, in pipe and furnace insulation materials, asbestos shingles, millboard, textured paints and other coating materials, and floor tiles. And as these material wear out, new asbestos particles are released, creating new cases of Mesothelioma.
 
Mesothelioma is relatively rare. About 2,000 to 3,000 people are diagnosed in the U.S. And Mesothelioma is more common in males than in females.  It most commonly occurs in the fifth and seventh decade of an individual's life.
 
Mesothelioma is 100 percent fatal. The life expectancy for someone who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma is less than two years. Many people think that Mesothelioma is a form of lung cancer. This is not true. Mesothelioma starts as a cancer of the tissue or membranes surrounding the lungs or heart or stomach.  It is only when the cancer has advanced  beyond the original membrane surface to other parts of the body, such as the lymph nodes, lungs, chest wall, or abdominal organs that the cancer is usually detected. This is the cause of the confusion over the description as a lung cancer. The fact that the tumors, while in the membranes, remain flat and basically undetectable is also why Mesothelioma is so deadly.
 
If you have developed mesothelioma or if someone you love has died of the disease, you should know that you may be entitled to financial compensation from those who were responsible for exposing you to this life-threatening hazard.
