How Does Someone Contract Mesothelioma?

How Does Someone Contract Mesothelioma?

If you have pleural mesothelioma, that is mesothelioma of the pleural lining, that which surrounds your lungs, there is really only one cause: asbestos exposure. Pleural mesothelioma is not caused by radiation or toxic fumes of any sort, only the fibrous particles of asbestos.

Mesothelioma is also not contagious, but asbestos exposure can be. If your husband or father worked in an industry where asbestos exposure was heavy and constant, you may have been exposed to second-hand asbestos from his work clothes.

In other words, the way most people contract mesothelioma is through occupational exposure through their job or the job of a loved one.

If you have mesothelioma, the question becomes not “what caused my mesothelioma?” but “when was I exposed to asbestos?”
