What Causes Mesothelioma?

The cause of Mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos materials and products. Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly type of cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs, stomach (abdomen), and the heart sac. When a person breathes, inhales or ingests microscopic asbestos fibers they can stay dormant in the body for 10-50 years before manifesting cancer symptoms.


Who is Most Likely to Get Mesothelioma?


The average age of a person diagnosed with Mesothelioma is 69 years old. People most likely to get diagnosed with Mesothelioma have worked around asbestos did the laundry for a worker would have been exposed. About 3,500 people will be diagnosed with malignant Mesothelioma each year in the U. S., and more than 15,000 Americans will be diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease (asbestos lung cancer, asbestosis). 


Malignant Mesothelioma primarily occurs in patients between the ages of 55-75.

When Did the Military Know About Asbestos Exposure?

The Navy’s Surgeon General described in his 1929 annual report, “Hazards of Asbestosis” that the cause of asbestosis is extended asbestos exposure to military veterans yet the Navy continued its use of toxic asbestos for 40 more years. 


U. S. Courts are now holding asbestos companies and distributors that exposed veterans to deadly asbestos dust and fibers accountable by awarding Mesothelioma victims large settlements for their pain and suffering.
