Is Mesothelioma Hereditary or Contagious?

Mesothelioma is a very dangerous and aggressive cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure. Many people who are affected by asbestos exposure are people who have worked in the construction industry and were exposed to broken asbestos fibers in materials such as piping, drywall, and ceramic tiles. Although asbestos use was banned in the United States in the late 1970s, buildings that were constructed prior to the ban of asbestos still pose a risk for those who come in contact with the building materials. Mesothelioma is not hereditary or contagious, but many children of construction workers may have been exposed to asbestos fibers left on their parent’s clothing.

If you or your child has been affected by asbestos exposure, it is very important to seek financial compensation for your injuries and treatment costs. Contact an experienced mesothelioma attorney of Williams Hart today at 800-781-3955 to discuss your financial and legal options.

Dangers of Asbestos

Although children likely did not have direct contact with broken asbestos fibers in older buildings, they may have been exposed to their family members’ clothing or work materials that had traces of asbestos fibers on them and were brought home. This exposure is serious, because asbestos fibers are known to cause:

  • Lung scarring
  • Incurable lung cancer, like mesothelioma
  • Asbestosis
  • Death

Mesothelioma is incurable, but there are treatments that can make your life easier when dealing with this difficult condition.
