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
  • Exhaustion
  • 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. A lawsuit is often necessary to collect compensation that makes treatment affordable.
