Did you know that, every year, about 3,000 individuals in the United States are diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer? Mesothelioma is a rare and incurable disease that develops after exposure to asbestos. Once asbestos is inhaled or swallowed by an individual, the microscopic fibers are able to penetrate different areas of the body, which can lead to the development of fatal tumors over time.
For those who have spent their lives working around asbestos, mesothelioma is not something to be ignored. Many people are unaware that such a disease even exists, but victims are becoming less and less rare as the years go by.
