Amount of Exposure

The Amount Of Exposure That Causes Mesothelioma Or Cancer Is Unknown

Experienced doctors know that the more exposure a person has to asbestos, the greater the chance that he or she will develop serious asbestos-related diseases. All asbestos exposures are significant. It is the total and cumulative asbestos exposures that cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, colon cancer, laryngeal cancer and asbestosis.

Working directly with asbestos-containing materials is not the only cause and risk factor for mesothelioma. We now know — and successful lawsuits have reinforced — that second hand exposure to asbestos (such as regularly washing someone's asbestos-tainted clothes) can have serious and deadly consequences. People who handle asbestos and those in the area of its use can develop asbestos-related diseases.

  • Workers who did not handle asbestos-containing products directly, but were commonly exposed to asbestos dust in the workplace
  • Family members of a father, mother, spouse or other household residents who unknowingly brought asbestos dust into the home on their clothes, hair and skin
