Why Did This Happen to me?
The first thing you need to know is that Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos, and that your exposure probably took place many, many years ago. There are many different places where you may have been exposed, but it was probably at work or from someone who worked around asbestos and brought the fibers home.
Many years ago, asbestos was used all the time in construction and insulation because it is strong and cheap. Unfortunately, it is also deadly. The asbestos companies knew that your health was at risk, but most companies chose to keep that information quiet so that they could continue to sell their asbestos products and make a substantial profit.
Asbestos Exposure is Dangerous
It only takes a small amount of asbestos dust or fiber to be breathed in or swallowed for it to take hold in your cells and slowly turn into cancer and it can take as long as fifty or more years for the cancer to grow big enough for it to start making you feel sick. If your doctor has told you that you have mesothelioma, then it came from breathing in asbestos decades ago.
Types of Mesothelioma Cancer
Mesothelioma can appear in three different parts of your body. The most common type of Mesothelioma is Pleural Mesothelioma, which involves your lungs and chest cavity, but it can also appear in your abdomen (Peritoneal Mesothelioma) or around your heart (Pericardial Mesothelioma).
Unfortunately, Mesothelioma is considered an illness that is extremely challenging to treat, though there are new treatments being tested every day that can extend your life expectancy. We can provide you with all the latest information on innovative breakthroughs in mesothelioma care.
