The most common cause of mesothelioma is asbestos exposure. More than 80 percent of pleural mesothelioma patients and up to half of peritoneal mesothelioma patients have a known history of asbestos exposure. It’s clear that asbestos is strongly associated with the development of mesothelioma, but scientists are still working to understand exactly how the mineral causes cancer.
Many people were exposed to asbestos at work. Military veterans, industrial workers, construction workers and firefighters are among those who are most likely to have had workplace asbestos exposure.
The families of workers may also have been exposed because asbestos fibers can travel on a person’s clothing, skin and hair, and then enter the air in the home. This secondary exposure to asbestos is a contributor to mesothelioma in women.
This guide by the Lanier Law Firm gives an overview on this type of cancer, symptoms, diagnosis, and where help can be found.
