Secondary Exposure to Mesothelioma for Women

Men are much more likely to develop mesothelioma than women. The reason for this lies in how most people contract the rare form of lung cancer.

Asbestos exposure is believed to be the primary cause of mesothelioma. For many men, particularly those who work in the construction, manufacturing and other trades, asbestos exposure was common in the workplace. While women have had jobs working in these male-dominated fields, they are much less likely to develop mesothelioma because they weren't as likely to be exposed to asbestos on the job. They could have been employed in a desk job, rather than working directly with asbestos as men traditionally have done.

Even so, many cases of asbestos-related health conditions, including mesothelioma, are diagnosed in women each year. Women make up about 8 percent of patients diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases.

Many of these women, it is often discovered decades later, were victims of secondary exposure to asbestos. They did not directly encounter the materials on the job; instead, they were exposed to it indirectly. Because asbestos fibers are microscopic, the fibers were unintentionally inhaled by the victims.

Often women have been exposed to asbestos when their husband, father, son or another family member  brought the fibers home on their clothing or in their hair from the workplace.

It's very likely that the woman greeted her husband or other family member after he returned home from work, before he had an opportunity to get cleaned up or shower. He brought asbestos dust in the home with him on his clothes. Women have generally been responsible for doing laundry and in some cases, they may wash their husband's work clothes each night to get them ready to wear the next day.

In this case, they may shake out the dirty clothing, releasing the asbestos fibers into the air and inhaling them. This is a scenario often repeated frequently for years. After years, women in this scenario often began developing pulmonary issues, like coughing or difficulty breathing.

Decades later, she may be diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma as a result of secondary exposure to asbestos.

There have been documented cases of women who remember, as children, climbing up on their father's lap right after he got home from work. As a result, as children they inhaled the needle-like asbestos fibers inadvertently brought home with their fathers.

There are women who lived near factories that manufactured products containing asbestos who have died due to asbestos exposure. Mining communities were particularly harmful for women, children and men, since the asbestos fibers circulated in the air when the mines were operating.

In rare situations, women may also become victims of secondary exposure to asbestos because of naturally-occurring asbestos found in nature, particularly in the western part of the United States.
