Can Mesothelioma Affect My Children?

There is some concern that mesothelioma can affect the children of those exposed to asbestos. This is indirectly true, but the effect is not direct, as it would be with something that affects the reproductive organs. Most research has shown that people exposed to asbestos have not passed any risk for disease onto their children, aside from secondary exposure. You should not have to worry about “passing on” any cancer gene related to asbestos.

Most health researchers agree that mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos and the buildup of asbestos fibers in the mesothelial tissue. This is the tissue that surrounds the lungs, though it is also present in the abdomen, around the heart, and around the testicles. Mesothelioma can also occur in these parts of the body, though incidences of this type of the disease are rare.

First-Hand Exposure

In general, people who were exposed to asbestos in the workplace have the highest risk of developing mesothelioma. Most people experience a long latency period of the disease before it develops into full-blown cancer. It is usually decades between the time of exposure and the diagnosis of cancer. For most, exposure occurred in early to mid-adulthood and cancer did not arise until close to the senior years. For the average person, this is well past childbearing years.

Second-Hand Exposure

The point at which asbestos does become a danger for children is during second-hand exposure. This is similar to what occurs when a parent smokes around a child. The child is not smoking the cigarette, but the smoke is still being inhaled through the air. The same is true with asbestos fibers. Parents working in asbestos filled environments carry fibers home on their clothes. These fibers become air born in the home and children inhale them. This leads to secondary exposure and could conceivably result in adult children developing mesothelioma.

The truth is only time will tell if this will be problematic. As more and more people develop mesothelioma, the stories behind these cases evolve. The majority of people suffered long-term exposure in the workplace, but there are cases of wives and mothers of those workers developing mesothelioma. There is likely going to be cases of children with similar stories.

Just as there are things you can do if you were exposed to asbestos first-hand, there are things second-hand exposure sufferers can do to reduce their risk for mesothelioma. Learn to recognize the symptoms, speak with your doctor about your risk factors, and quit smoking.
