Is Asbestos The Only Cause Of Mesothelioma?

iabestosisotherasbestosdisease_27.jpgIf you or a loved one were diagnosed with mesothelioma, you undoubtedly have serious questions about the disease, its causes, and possible medical treatments to help live a longer, happier life. Often times, one of the most pressing questions for mesothelioma victims is, "How did I get mesothelioma?" or "Where did my mesothelioma come from?" 

While cancer diagnoses are best made by trained, experienced oncologists and pathologists, the causal link between exposure to asbestos and developing mesothelioma has been known for many decades. Mesothelioma is often referred to the signature disease of asbestos exposure. In other words, mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer and when a diagnosis is made, asbestos exposure is investigated as the cause.

Asbestos is a mineral once popular in many industrial and commercial products, particularly as an insulation due to its heat-resistant properties. Applications of the dangerous mineral included auto parts, flooring, siding, and military settings, which created the possibility that millions of Americans could have been exposed.

Other factors in developing mesothelioma include age and gender. By its very nature, mesothelioma takes decades to develop in people so older people are inherently at higher risk of the disease. Additionally, men are at higher risk of developing mesothelioma since most of the workers exposed to asbestos in industrial settings were male.

Mesothelioma Treatments

If you or a loved one developed mesothelioma, there are important medical treatments to help fight the disease and improve quality of life. Many mesothelioma victims were hard working people and therefore deserve the best treatments and medicine available to live comfortably.

Unfortunately, insurance and other medical assistance programs do not always cover the full costs of these services, leaving patients and families struggling to find a way to pay for them. The good news is that the law gives mesothelioma victims recourse to hold wrongdoers who caused their condition responsible.
