FAQ

Mesothelioma
Asbestos, a toxic mineral used and present all around the world, is responsible for what is known as malignant mesothelioma. When the tiny particles are ingested or inhaled, they can eventually cause this very aggressive cancer. Even after the link between asbestos and mesothelioma was discovered in 1964, industries have still gone on to use this mineral, only with stronger precautions.  The people who work in these industries are not the only ones at risk for developing mesothelioma. Secondary exposure can occur when these workers carry the particles in their hair, on their clothing, and even on their skin, back to their homes. Over time this secondary exposure can also lead to an eventual case of mesothelioma. Asbestos is also present in many construction materials, meaning that when people do such things as remodel homes, they can be exposed to these particles that can linger in the air.

The time between the exposure to asbestos and when the person is diagnosed with the disease averages 30-45 years. This is what is known as the latency period. It is believed by researchers that higher levels of exposure result in shorter latency periods (but still 20 years or greater), and often more aggressive cancers. The long latency period also contributes to the fact that many people who are diagnosed with the disease are between the ages of 60 and 70 years of age, which also inhibits accurate diagnoses.  Because those who are diagnosed with mesothelioma are often older in age, they are more likely to already be experiencing other health issues which may mask or confuse the symptoms of mesothelioma. The younger the person is when diagnosed, the more likely it is that they will be healthy enough for the treatment options available.

Surgery is the primary choice for treating mesothelioma. It can be used for procedures to aspirate areas and remove excess fluid that is causing pain, it can be used to remove lymph nodes and help stage the disease, and it can even be used to remove an entire lung if it is found that the cancer appears confined to that area.  A multimodal approach is also often the preferred method of treatment, where two treatment options are combined (this can be done where one is used shortly after the other). Surgery and chemotherapy are often used to give patients the best chance for an extended life. Surgery is also sometimes used with radiation, although the location of the disease might prohibit the safe use of radiation.
The life expectancy of those with mesothelioma depends on the stage of the disease when diagnosed, the location of the disease, and other contributing factors. However, on average patients live 8 to 18 months after diagnosis (some can live 5 years or more with aggressive treatments and early detection).
