Preventing Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an incurable cancer that attacks the lining of an individual’s internal organs. This cancer spreads quickly and can cause the sufferer a great deal of pain. Studies have shown conclusively that individuals who are exposed to asbestos are at a greater risk for developing mesothelioma.

Asbestos was a popular building material until the late 1970s, when government regulations limited the use of it. Unfortunately, the asbestos restrictions did not mandate the removal of asbestos, so asbestos may still be present in older buildings, sometimes in great quantities.

Protecting Yourself from Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is not contagious; it develops after exposure to asbestos. As such, the best way for an individual to protect him or herself from mesothelioma is to avoid exposure to asbestos. This may be difficult for some people, as they may:

  • Live in older homes
  • Work in older buildings
  • Frequently visit older properties

These locations are more likely to contain asbestos, meaning individuals are more likely to suffer exposure and increase their chances of developing mesothelioma.

Individuals who have concerns about asbestos exposure can get their homes tested for asbestos. Additionally, workers may have the right to ask their employers if they work in an environment that contains asbestos.

Any exposure to asbestos may be too much exposure, so individuals who live and work in older properties may want to have these places tested for asbestos content.
