Mesothelioma cancer

Many more cases of mesothelioma, due to asbestos exposure, are beginning to surface today. With the widespread use of asbestos during the 20th century we are starting to see the consequences of exposure to this toxic material. Mesothelioma is the deadliest type of cancer arising due to the inhalation or ingestion of unseen microscopic asbestos fibers, over a period of time. When a person inhales the asbestos fibers, the fibers settle and firmly stick to the lungs. The asbestos fibers in the hair or clothing of the person who is directly exposed to asbestos, can be passed to all those who come into contact with them. Asbestos is a material that was used heavily for many years in hundreds of products. Asbestos was primarily used due to the fact that it is strong, resists fire and corrosion, and has very effective properties for insulation.

In general, Mesothelioma Cancer life expectancy is about 12-18 months with treatment, because it is almost always diagnosed when it has spread to incurable levels. Scientists are researching on new ways and techniques to cure mesothelioma. Promising results have been noticed for the new treatments after numerous clinical trials. Individuals with any kind of asbestos exposure in the past, should consult the doctor immediately as the doctor can guide them on the latest techniques, equipments and treatments. The new technology is focusing on prolonging the mesothelioma life expectancy or even curing the mesothelioma totally.
