It has been reported that a welder who had worked in nuclear power plants, foundries, and a shipyard, died at his home in Michigan from malignant mesothelioma at the age of 77. Malignant mesothelioma is a cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure. People who have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma should explore the latest treatment options available for the cancer. They should also explore their legal options with a mesothelioma attorney because asbestos exposure often occurs due to the recklessness of companies in the asbestos industry that failed to warn of the lethal dangers of asbestos.

Malignant mesothelioma: An asbestos cancer

Malignant mesothelioma is a cancer of the mesothelium. The mesothelium is a membrane that constitutes the lining of various bodily cavities such as the chest or abdomen. Two types of malignant mesothelioma are:

Pleural mesothelioma
Peritoneal mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the lungs and peritoneal mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the abdomen. Both types of mesothelioma typically develop decades after exposure to asbestos has taken place. Once asbestos fibers are inhaled, they can become trapped within bodily organs such as the abdomen or lungs and initiate the development of malignant mesothelioma such as pleural mesothelioma or peritoneal mesothelioma.

Jobs involving the risk of malignant mesothelioma

Sadly, asbestos was used in many products because of it physical characteristics i.e., its flexibility and its fire-resistant quality. Some products in which asbestos was used are brake pads, adhesives, floor tiles, clutches and cement. People who have worked with asbestos-containing products are at risk of developing malignant mesothelioma such as pleural mesothelioma and peritoneal mesothelioma. Workers at risk of developing malignant mesothelioma include:

Mechanics
Carpenters
Welders
Construction workers
Sheet metal workers
Plumbers
