Am I At Risk Of Getting Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a cancer that typically takes many years to develop and is often not diagnosed until it has reached an advanced stage. Because it is caused primarily by asbestos exposure, people who inhale or ingest asbestos fibers are at the greatest risk for developing this cancer. Workers in certain industrial occupations have had the highest exposure to asbestos. In addition, their families can inhale or ingest asbestos fibers brought home on the workers and their clothing.
