Did you know that asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral that can be found in hundreds of countries worldwide? Most cases of asbestos exposure may dramatically increase since this substance is normally used in the industries of manufacturing, commerce, military, automotive, railroad and chemical processing.
Inhaled airborne fibers remain in our body and it cannot be expelled. The fibers can easily penetrate our body tissues and may deposit themselves in airways and in the lung tissue.
Once the fibers are lodged in the body, they will cause inflammation which may eventually result in the formation of cancerous tumors, particularly on the Mesothelium or the lining of the lungs. The more we are exposed to asbestos, the more likely we can develop an asbestos-related disease. On the other hand, people exposed to asbestos on a very casual basis have least chances of getting this disease.
It is then important to know that Cancer Mesothelioma is considered to be malignant.
