Mesothelioma: What Is It?
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer often called asbestos cancer. It attacks the lining of various organs and areas of the body, and currently there is no cure for it. Mesothelioma victims must endure pain, suffering and tremendous medical bills. Their families suffer as well. The reason mesothelioma is also sometimes called asbestos cancer is because asbestos exposure is a cause of mesothelioma.
After asbestos exposure, the first signs of mesothelioma can take between 10 and 50 years to show up. Sometimes victims don’t realize that they were exposed to asbestos long ago while on the job. Even a child of a construction worker exposed to asbestos can get mesothelioma, for example, if that parent tracked asbestos fibers into their home after work. There are many situations where people can experience asbestos exposure.
