It’s not the first time I’ve heard that exposure to asbestos can cause serious problems and the most common victims are people who use asbestos cement products and those who work on jobs relating to construction. When inhaled, the dust and particles of asbestos may develop malignant cancer in the mesotholium. The cancer is called mesothelioma. While there is no common cure for this disease at present, there are available treatments. Mesothelioma can be treated through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
