Facts About Mesothelioma

Malignant mesothelioma is a cancer of the mesothelium, the lining that surrounds and protects various organs. It is the job of this lining to provide much needed lubrication, allowing the organ to contract and expand as needed, such as the pumping of the heart and the movements of the lungs during breathing. There are four distinct types of mesothelioma, and each is classified by the location in the body.

•    The lining of the lungs – known as pleural mesothelioma
•    The lining of the heart – known as pericardial mesothelioma
•    The lining of the abdominal cavity – known as peritoneal mesothelioma
•    The lining of the testes – known as testicular mesothelioma

What Causes Mesothelioma?
Malignant mesothelioma was first directly tied to asbestos exposure in 1964, even though the disease had been identified decades earlier. Asbestos is a toxic mineral that can even be present in something as innocent as remodeling a home, but it is often associated with industrial jobs. Secondary exposure can also occur, such as in family members who are contaminated with the fibers when another family member brings home asbestos particles on clothing or skin from a job site for many years. Asbestos particles are microscopic and while they are most often inhaled, they can also be unknowingly ingested in some instances.
Even though the awareness of the dangers of asbestos has increased, the effects of it are still being felt as people continue to be diagnosed with mesothelioma. It is estimated by the National Institute of Health that each year between 1940 and 1978 there were 11 million people worldwide who were exposed to the toxins on asbestos.

Given that the period of latency, referring to the time of exposure until the time of diagnosis, usually ranges between 20 and 50 years or more, most of the people who are diagnosed with this disease are 60 years or older. The more the severe the exposure levels tended to be, the worse the prognosis also tends to be. Elevated levels of asbestos exposure also usually result in slightly shorter periods of latency.

Who is Most at Risk?
Due to the source of mesothelioma being asbestos exposure, males are four times as likely to develop the disease as they are predominantly in work environments where asbestos is present. Some of those work environments include:

•    Construction workers
•    Military members, especially those in the Navy
•    Those who work in chemical engineering plants
•    Automobile mechanics

Even for people who do not work in these and other related industries where asbestos is a component of the job, exposure can happen. Before the complete dangers of asbestos were known, everyday products used around the world were manufactured with asbestos: pipes, insulation, concrete, drywall, flooring, appliances, and plastics, just to name a few. Stronger restrictions have been put into place in many countries regarding the use of asbestos, but each day many people are still exposed to these microscopic particles.
