Mesothelioma is among the most insidious and deadly forms of cancer, one that tragically claims the health and lives of its victims after lying in wait for years or even decades. Caused by exposure to asbestos, mesothelioma is sadly common among workers in certain occupations before the asbestos industry was forced to make the hazards of exposure known to the public at large. Miners, construction workers, firefighters, insulation installers, electricians, painters, welders, shipyard workers, steel mill workers, plumbers, and hundreds of other types of professional laborers were put at risk many years ago, yet many are only now learning of the consequences.
