Mesothelioma Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Mesothelioma Lawyers Serving Victims & Families Nationwide

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a dangerous form of cancer caused by long-term exposure to asbestos. Sharp, microscopic asbestos fibers enter the body through inhalation, and serve as an irritant to your organs. This irritation can eventually leading to scarring and cancerous tumor growth in the mesothelium membrane that surrounds body cavities.

What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a term used to describe seven fibrous minerals once commonly utilized in the manufacture of various materials, including building insulation. It was banned in the United States by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) after being linked to numerous health concerns. Asbestos remains a problem, however, because there are many natural deposits found throughout the United States. In addition, individuals working with buildings or materials constructed prior to the EPA’s ban face the risk of exposure.

Who is at risk?

Due to the prevalence of asbestos, almost all people have been exposed at some point in their lives. Individuals at risk of asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma, however, are people who have spent long periods of time working in conditions where asbestos is prevalent. Certain industries carry higher risk factors than others, including construction, shipbuilding, energy, cement manufacturing, steel manufacturing, and paper production.
