What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a serious, non-curable form of cancer resulting from asbestos exposure and often not appearing until decades after the initial contact. Many Americans facing this condition were once employed in jobs such as:

  • Boilermakers

  • Bricklayers

  • Carpenters

  • Cement finishers

  • Drywall workers

  • Electricians

  • Engineers

  • Foundry workers

  • Helpers

  • Insulators

  • Laborers

  • Lathers

  • Machinists

  • Mechanics

  • Millwrights

  • Operators

  • Painters

  • Paper workers

  • Plasterers

  • Pipefitters

  • Plumbers

  • Power plant workers

  • Roofers

  • Sailors (Navy & Merchant Marine)

  • Shipyard workers

  • Steel workers

  • Sheet metal workers

  • Welders

Although Americans have known asbestos fiber to be carcinogenic since the 1920s, the fiber remained in use until the 1970s. Some modern buildings still contain the cancerous material, despite what we know about asbestos today.
