Asbestos is a generic name given to a fibrous variety of six naturally occurring minerals that have been used for decades in the development of thousands of commercial products.
How can asbestos injure you and your loved ones?
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that develops in the tissues of cells that line the lungs, heart and stomach. These tissues are called mesothelial cells and they become infected by inhaling particles of dust from asbestos fibers. It is estimated that about 3,000 to 4,000 cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed each year in the U.S.
What are the symptoms when affected by asbestos?
Symptoms of mesothelioma may not appear until 20 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos. Shortness of breath, cough, and pain in the chest due to an accumulation of fluid around the lungs are often symptoms of pleural mesothelioma.
