Preventing Mesothelioma after Asbestos Exposure

If you’ve spent many years working around asbestos, particularly in construction or manufacturing industries, you may already know how to prevent asbestos exposure.
Many workers may feel it’s too late to avoid developing mesothelioma. They may feel predestined to contract the rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure because they knowingly were exposed to the disease many years ago. Throughout the 20th Century, thousands of products contained asbestos, a natural-occurring mineral that was valued in construction and other industries for its corrosive- and heat-resistant properties. What few people knew back then was that microscopic asbestos fibers are easily inhaled, often unknowingly, but many times they don’t leave the body. The tiny fibers become lodged within the lining that surrounds the lungs and other organs. After many decades, often two to five decades, the patient begins to exhibit symptoms of the disease, but it is often detected too late. The average life expectancy of a mesothelioma patient after diagnosis is one year.
Back in the day, the vast majority of workers had no clue that being exposed to asbestos would lead to contracting a rare form of cancer, or other types of asbestos-related conditions, much later in life.

Today, life is different in these work environments. Most people understand that there are risks associated with working around asbestos, and will take necessary precautions, even if asbestos is only suspected to be at the worksite. They also understand that when they’re exposed to asbestos, so are their clothing, which need to remain at the job. If they wear clothing covered in asbestos home, they would be potentially harming their loved ones by a secondary exposure to the toxic materials. Homeowners can become exposed to asbestos if they undergo a home remodeling project. Asbestos can be found in many different construction materials used in older homes, including insulation, shingles, drywall, floor tiles, popcorn ceilings, joint compounds and in materials that are wrapped around pipes and wires. If asbestos was damaged or is crumbling because of age, it is particularly dangerous. If you or someone who know is performing any home remodeling projects on a home built before 1980, he or she should educate themselves about asbestos exposure and wear appropriate protective gear.

If you’ve been exposed to asbestos, it’s important to regular monitor your health to try to spot any early signs of mesothelioma. There are more treatment options available if the disease is caught earlier. If you smoke, it’s important for your health to quit. Studies have found that smoking not only damages your lungs, but can increase your risk of developing mesothelioma if you’ve been exposed to asbestos.
