In Omaha, Nebraska, a fire fighter underwent surgery for his mesothelioma. In order to remove the tumor, doctors also had to remove parts of the man's spleen, pancreas and appendix. He made it through the surgery, but it is still too early to tell whether or not the cancer has been abated.
Fire fighters have been occupationally exposed to asbestos for years. Unfortunately, there has only recently been an effort to decrease this exposure. This has led many fire fighters to develop mesothelioma, and that trend is likely to continue for at least another decade.
