Mesothelioma is an uncommon type of cancer that attacks the protective liner (or mesothelium) of the lungs, which consequently causes them to be unable to function properly. Mesothelioma is almost always deadly and virtually all cases of mesothelioma disease are caused by asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma accounts for at least 3,000 deaths in the United States annually but is increasing at an alarming speed.
Malignant mesothelioma is almost exclusively due to asbestos exposure. Asbestos is a form of silicate mineral that's been used by manufacturers around the world as a result of its capacity to withstand damage from flame, heat, and electric charge. The most frequent type of asbestos used in the USA is known as chrysotile.
Chrysotile is used to produce a wide array of goods, including insulation, drywall, "mud", joint compound, plaster, roofing shingles, ceilings, gaskets, brake pads, clutch discs, stage curtains, fire blankets, firebricks, and high- temperature cement, welding rods, cement piping, dental cast linings, along with filters designed to remove particulates from fluids.
In 2005, it was estimated that 1.3 million employees were in surroundings that included asbestos, even though the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets limits to the acceptable level of asbestos exposure in the workplace.
Asbestos is located in factories where the manufacture of those above-listed products takes place, but also warehouses and other places where products that contain asbestos are kept or stored. Individuals who have only worked for only a few months in factories that have asbestos have developed mesothelioma.
Elderly buildings constructed with asbestos-containing building materials also pose a threat to inhabitants for developing mesothelioma. The threat remains for people who aren't directly exposed to asbestos. Family members of those working or have been subjected to asbestos also face the danger of becoming in contact with the asbestos dust by way of clothing, hair, or skin follicles.
For example, in the 1980s and 1990s, many instances of mesothelioma started appearing in a girl who hadn't worked in or about asbestos. It turns out that these girls were either married to or the daughters of workers that were working with asbestos goods throughout the 1960s, 1970's and 1980's and this woman washed the family clothes. The first step in washing the clothes was to shake off the dust (which frequently contained asbestos). These girls inhaled the asbestos fibers in this manner and subsequently were diagnosed with mesothelioma.
The 3 main types of mesothelioma include: 1) pleural Mesothelioma, that is the most common form that affects the lining of the lungs, 2) peritoneal mesothelioma, which affects the lining of the gut cavity, and 3) pericardial disease, the most infrequent form, which affects the lining of the heart.
Regrettably, the existence of mesothelioma usually belongs unnoticed before the harmful bodily effects have already happened. Symptoms of mesothelioma occasionally won't look for 20 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos, which makes it difficult for those affected to know if they are in danger. However, more serious cases may cause more severe symptoms like blood clots, bowel obstruction, jaundice, or low blood glucose.
Unfortunately, mesothelioma can be catastrophic cancer that Frequently leads to death. Though an individual diagnosed with mesothelioma has an average life expectancy of one year, medical professionals nevertheless can fight cancer using three distinct remedies: chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery (and in acute cases a combination of all three). Normally, chemotherapy can be used to prevent cells from dividing, which has the effect of preventing cancer from spreading throughout the body.
Radiation therapy can be used to destroy or shrink cancerous cells by focusing high-energy beams on outside cancerous tumors or even injecting radioactive substances to surround internal tumors. If the surgery is possible, physicians will attempt to make incisions to physically remove the malignant tumors, a procedure known as a biopsy. Because of the increase in mesothelioma diagnosis on a nationwide level, there are now clinical trials being conducted in exploring alternative treatments.
