Along with pancreatic cancer, mesothelioma is one of the deadliest forms of cancer. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. Most commonly, the exposure occurred occupationally at the person's workplace.
The tiny, sharp asbestos fibers may be inhaled or swallowed and become trapped in the lining of the lungs or other organs, which over the course of years or even decades, may lead to the development of mesothelioma.
Generally, there is a long period of time between the exposure and the diagnosis of mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a very rare form of cancer, and most people exposed to asbestos will not develop the disease.
Mesothelioma symptoms often do not appear or become noticeable until the disease has progressed beyond the initial stages, which makes treatment options limited. Additionally, symptoms of the disease are often similar to other, less serious conditions.
Mesothelioma is a very aggressive form of cancer. It's important to proactively inform your medical providers of your history of exposure to asbestos so that your health may be monitored accordingly.
