Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos, a toxic material that has historically been used in many manufacturing and construction industries. Once asbestos fibers are inhaled, they lodge in lung tissue, causing cellular damage and eventually leading to the growth of tumors.
Mesothelioma can take many years to develop and manifest. If you have a history of asbestos exposure, either from working in construction sites or shipyards, living with someone who worked in such jobs, living near a construction site, or living or working in a building with asbestos, or exposure through other high-risk occupations or areas, it is important to see a doctor immediately and then consult an attorney about seeking compensation.
