Diagnosing Asbestos Mesothelioma
It is important to talk with an medical professional if you believe you have symptoms of mesothelioma. This rare, potentially deadly cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos fibers. Until the 1980s when asbestos was finally banned from U.S. manufacturing, many were exposed to large quantities of asbestos in their workplaces.
Even today, construction workers and others working around pre-1980s products could be exposed to the hazardous material.
Early Diagnosis Is Key.
It is important to speak with your doctor if you or a loved one has been exposed.
Symptoms of mesothelioma may not become apparent until as much as 50 years post-exposure. The important thing is to make sure that you are taking action to protect your health. Diagnosis of mesothelioma can be difficult. Other, common forms of cancer can easily be mistaken for mesothelioma. You should be sure to tell your doctor about your history of asbestos exposure so that your doctor is aware of the option of mesothelioma from the start.
