Mesothelioma caused by non-fault exposure to asbestos
What is mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer in which cancerous or malignant cells appear around the heart, chest or abdominal region of the body. It is considered to be exclusively related to asbestos exposure, and can take up to 40 years after asbestos exposure for symptoms of mesothelioma to appear.
A lot of people working for asbestos manufacturing companies have been exposed to the substance which then leads to mesothelioma. There is also a long time between when someone is exposed to asbestos and the onset of disease (15 – 60 years). Unfortunately, by the time it is diagnosed, mesothelioma is almost always fatal.
