Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the lungs, chest and abdomen, and is usually caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a mineral fiber used for insulation and fire prevention and can be found in a variety of manufactured products including insulation, roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, and automobile brake, clutch and transmission parts.
When asbestos-containing materials are disturbed by construction, repair or demolition, microscopic asbestos fibers become airborne and can enter the lungs, sometimes resulting in mesothelioma years after first exposure.
Due to its widespread use over for over a century, asbestos can be found virtually everywhere and asbestos related mesothelioma can stem from exposure from countless sources.
