Mesothelioma, I learned, is a kind of cancer that is acquired through exposure of this substance called asbestos. It basically affects the mesothelium, a lining that covers most of the organ in the body.
It comes with other symptoms as well. So by the time it's a confirmed Mesothelioma, people who are affected will already have life expectancy and it would be too late to really do a proper diagnosis.
It is quite dangerous as even people who washes the clothes with asbestos have a risk of getting the cancer. A mesothelioma prognosis is kind of hard to tell as it only slowly develops.
I am just hoping that companies who are using asbestos will no longer use this dangerous substance and use alternatives instead.
I mean, we're talking about life here. The more we ban those dangerous substances, the more we save lives.
