Story of Mesothelioma

The story of Mesothelioma and exposure to asbestos has been a sorry chapter in the history of this country. Asbestos used for many hundreds of years as insulation and fire-retardant material has been linked to sickness and death to unknown numbers of individuals exposed to it. It is now known that they only cause of Mesothelioma which is a type of cancer is asbestos exposure.

Greed and companies involved 

The unfortunate part of this story, evidence revealed many of the companies involved with asbestos products knew of the dangers that this product posed but still use it and continued to expose workers to the asbestos fibers that were hazardous. They did this purely due to greed.

Thousands of exposures

Asbestos fiber was used widely in thousands of buildings, housing, commercial, and industrial products and is still known to be present currently in millions of workplaces and homes in the United States. The risk of exposure to asbestos still remains a danger and the symptoms of malignant mesothelioma can in some cases do not appear for up to 15 years after exposure.

Working with asbestos products

For the millions who worked with or were around asbestos products, airborne fibers were inhaled as well as ingested, lodged in tissue linings of the lung, chest or abdominal cavity. These fibers stayed in the body for decades prior to mesothelioma developing.

Federal government

Finally, in the mid-nineteen seventies, the Federal Government comes in with OSHA to start regulating the manufacture and sale of products containing asbestos. As more information concerning an asbestos disease that had been hidden by the asbestos industry came to light the “Environmental Protection Agency” along with the “Consumer Product Safety Commission” prescribed stricter regulations on asbestos use in industrial and commercial products.

Asbestos cancer diagnosis

Asbestos cancer diagnosis, including mesothelioma and lung carcinoma diagnosis are quite difficult because symptoms of these illnesses might mimic in early stages symptoms of various other, more minor problems of the respiratory system. Symptoms and signs such as shortness of breath, chest pains, or chronic cough that is dry can lead medical professionals to be suspicious of mesothelioma mainly if the patient has a known history of exposure to asbestos.
