What Does Asbestos Exposure Do?
Asbestos is a thin, microfiber mineral that is relatively harmless in normal
situations, even safe to touch. It becomes extremely dangerous after it
has become broken apart and invisible filaments fill the air; due to the
fragile nature of asbestos, it is prone to breaking and shedding pieces
in light breezes. When people in the area breathe, the microfilaments
are swept up in their breath, even when wearing respirators and breathing
apparatuses. The eventual buildup of countless tiny fragments of asbestos
in the lungs increases the risk of lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Conditions or symptoms caused by asbestos exposure include:
- Shortness of breath
- Whooping cough
- Kidney failure
- Dramatic weight loss
- Blood in mouth
- Facial swelling
Treatments for Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other consequences of frequent asbestos
exposure require thorough and costly treatments. Many patients need to
use multiple x-rays, CT scans, and other advanced procedures to pinpoint
the location of their cancerous growths. Surgery may be necessary, or
lifelong treatments to alleviate some of the symptoms. In any situation,
the overall expense can be too great for an individual’s finances.
