Mesothelioma Help Center - Mesothelioma Cause

Did you know?
During the 1960s the first definite link between mesothelioma and asbestos was made. Asbestos is now known to be the most common cause of the disease.

Asbestos exposure is the main cause of mesothelioma. The ingestion and inhalation of airborne asbestos fibers are the most common causes of mesothelioma. Nine out of ten cases of mesothelioma are caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a natural mineral, mined from rock found in many countries. It is made up of tiny fibers that are as strong as steel but can be woven like cotton and are highly resistant to heat and chemicals.

Asbestos fibers are very fine and when breathed in they can make their way into the smallest airways of the lung, so they cannot be breathed or coughed out. Once the fibers are in the lungs the body’s defense system tries to break them down and remove them, which leads to inflammation in the lung tissue.

Mesothelioma Causes:
The people likely to have been exposed to asbestos include:

  • Construction workers
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Boilermakers
  • Shipbuilders
  • Demolition workers
  • School workers
  • Iron workers
  • Cabinet makers
  • People who lived near to asbestos factories
  • People who worked in places where asbestos was present.
  • Family members of workers who worked with asbestos and brought the dust home on their clothes.

Mesothelioma is not contagious and cannot be passed on to other people. It is not caused by inherited faulty genes and so family members do not have an increased risk of developing it, unless they have been in contact with asbestos.

MESOTHELIOMA LAWSUIT - Note of Urgency

The first lawsuits against asbestos manufacturers were in 1929. Since then, many lawsuits have been filed against asbestos manufacturers and employers, for neglecting to implement safety measures after the links between asbestos, asbestosis, and mesothelioma became known (some reports seem to place this as early as 1898).

A good Mesothelioma attorney understands the unique complexities involved in this kind of litigation lawsuit, including asbestos product identification, specific asbestos-related medical issues, and specific time constraints that narrow the window of opportunity to file a claim.
