In recent news about the dangers of exposure to asbestos, an ex-factory worker is hoping to make contact with ex-colleagues after contracting mesothelioma cancer linked to asbestos lagging on pipes.
The woman, 56, believes she may have been exposed to the deadly asbestos, which has been linked to the mesothelioma cancer she has contracted, while working in a factory.
“I have heard in the past people saying there was asbestos lagging the pipes, and I used to go though the area with pipes to visit with my father, who also worked there.”
She has been told that the cancer she has, mesothelioma, is terminal.
Asbestos becomes dangerous when it is broken up and minute particles enter the lungs. The heat retardent material was commonly used for more than 100 years in factories, homes and even schools.
Many businesses and homes still have pipes coated with asbestos.
There is no definitively effective treatment that can help those with mesothelioma, so doctors are working to give the woman a decent quality of life.
Many who have worked with and around asbestos-lagged pipes have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
