Health Alert: Mesothelioma
Many fire fighters were exposed to asbestos, while putting their lives on the line for others. As a result of their bravery these professionals may develop mesothelioma, a form of cancer that attacks the cells lining of the body’s internal organs.
Exposure to asbestos is the primary cause of pleural mesothelioma. Used in many industries throughout the 20th century, asbestos was found in thousands of products and those who worked with the material in an occupational setting are most at risk for developing pleural mesothelioma.
Pleural mesothelioma develops in the mesothelium, which is the thin layer of tissue that lines and protects the chest cavity and other organs as well. While other types of mesothelioma may result from asbestos exposure, pleural mesothelioma is the most common, making up approximately 75 percent of all mesothelioma cases.
If you would like to learn more about asbestos and other types of mesothelioma, our sister site Asbestos.com is an all inclusive resource for asbestos and its associated diseases. Information concerning the most common locations for asbestos exposure may be found, in addition to topics on symptoms, treatment options, prognosis and coping with a mesothelioma diagnosis. Visitors can also review the most up-to-date information on mesothelioma through the news section as well as enroll in the monthly mesothelioma newsletter.
