Mesothelioma does not just happen. It is not a random disease. Rather, it has definite causes with the primary being exposure to asbestos dust and fibers. Exposure to asbestos in any way can lead to an eventual diagnosis of mesothelioma for those who lived or worked in an environment contaminated by asbestos. This includes:

  • Construction workers
  • Electricians
  • Firefighters
  • Mechanics
  • Naval veterans
  • Plumbers
  • Shipyard workers

Another factor contributing to an increased risk of mesothelioma is smoking. Though cigarettes, cigars and tobacco pipes do not cause this disease, they can increase the chances of developing mesothelioma in those who have had asbestos exposure.
