Who is at Risk for Mesothelioma?

Asbestos exposure is considered unsafe at any level, but long-term exposure increases a person’s risk for developing mesothelioma. This is due in part to the buildup of asbestos fibers that occurs over time. Once the fibers are inhaled they do not leave the respiratory system. Long-term exposure creates a greater buildup. Exposure also causes inflammation and scarring, both of which could contribute to the development of cancer cells. Obviously the more inflammation a person experiences, the greater the risks grows for a problem to develop.

Though long-term exposure increases the risk it is possible for anyone to develop mesothelioma. It is also possible to be exposed to asbestos even if you have never worked in an industry in which the mineral is prevalent. Some parts of the country have higher levels of naturally occurring asbestos, putting those already at risk in harm’s way.

In addition to those who worked directly with asbestos, there is also an increased risk for loved ones to develop mesothelioma. Asbestos fibers can be carried on clothing and inhaled long after direct exposure to large amounts of the mineral occurred in the workplace.

Since the latency period for mesothelioma is at least a decade or more, it can be difficult to trace when exposure actually occurred. Obviously if you worked in an at-risk environment, it is easy to tell how the disease developed. However, if you were not directly exposed, it can be harder to determine the cause. This is why it can be a challenge to prove that something is “at fault” when it comes to the development of mesothelioma.

If you worked in any of the following careers and you are concerned about your exposure to asbestos, speak to you doctor about your risk and understand the most common symptoms of the disease. Early detection is your best bet for curing or treating the disease. High-risk careers include:

•    Asbestos Removal Technicians
•    Automotive Workers
•    Bricklayers
•    Carpenters
•    Chemical Plant Technicians
•    Electricians
•    Floor Tile Layers
•    Iron Workers
•    Members of the Military
•    Pipefitters
•    Plumbers
•    Power Plant Technicians
•    Sheet Metal Workers
•    Shipyard Workers

This is not an all-inclusive list. There are other fields in which exposure occurred, so you need to make yourself as aware as possible of your risk. There may be no way to confirm whether or not you were exposed through your work place. In addition to career fields that might have worked directly with asbestos materials, there are also instances in which people were exposed secondarily in an environment. For instance, teachers in school buildings that used asbestos or people living in homes in which asbestos was used in the building materials are at risk.

It is also important to note that regardless of a person’s place of exposure, their likelihood of developing mesothelioma is increased if they smoke cigarettes. Smoking does not directly cause mesothelioma, but it increases a person’s risk of developing it a great deal if he or she was exposed. If you believe you were ever exposed to asbestos, you should quit smoking as soon as possible.
