Coast Guard Veterans and Malignant Mesothelioma

Coast Guard Veterans received the same asbestos-containing equipment, products, and training as the U.S. Navy Servicemen.


If you are a Coast Guard Veteran and were exposed to asbestos between 1930-1980, your risk of developing mesothelioma is seven times that of people in the general population.  


Members of the U.S. Coast Guard, like those in all branches of military service, were exposed to asbestos in the regular discharge of their duties. 


The U. S. Coast Guard enforces maritime laws and protects coastline and ports. The USCG also does drug and border enforcement; water rescues are responsible for inspecting commercial vessels and visiting foreign ships in U. S. ports and facilities.  


Coast Guard Bases and Buildings 


The Coast Guard has 48 bases spread across 48 states and in 26 foreign countries. These bases buildings were built between 1930-1970 and contained asbestos-containing materials.

What Causes Mesothelioma?

The direct 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). 

Coast Guard Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

U.S. Coast Guard vessels contained more than 300 asbestos products and materials. There are approximately 25 million U. S veterans who were exposed to asbestos and are at risk of developing Mesothelioma cancer. 


The latency period for asbestos cancer to develop can be 10-50 years after your initial exposure. 1 in 3 Coast Guard veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.


14 in 1000 WW2 shipyard workers died of an asbestos-related disease compared to 18 in 1000 combat-related deaths.


Navy veterans were exposed to asbestos in several ways during their service. Those at the highest risk are those who worked in the construction, repair, renovation or demolition of the thousands Navy vessels and bases containing asbestos.
