Many individuals have become victims of mesothelioma. The cases of this rare form of cancer, which is largely attributed to asbestos exposure, are expected to swell in the years to come. The long latency period of the disease makes detection quite hard such that an individual may already be infected with disease without his or her total knowledge.

Asbestos and Mesothelioma in Australia

According to several descriptions, mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that develops in the mesothelium (a thin layer of cell surrounding the chest, abdomen, and the heart). This cancer is considered an aggressive type because it is usually discovered during its late stages. A lot of patients infected with this disease are those who have been exposed to asbestos – a naturally occurring mineral which was once greatly used in the construction and manufacturing industries.

Prior to its total ban in Australia, there are already huge numbers of individuals who are affected by mesothelioma. One of the apparent reasons was the presence of numerous asbestos mining sites in the country. According to an article published by Mesothelioma Center, an estimated 10000 individuals have already died from mesothelioma since early 1980s. This number is expected to grow to up to 25000 over the next few decades. This projection is anchored on the extensive history of asbestos use all throughout Australia.

High numbers of residential and commercial establishments were known to have been built with the use of asbestos-containing materials. This predicament is very true especially for those established before asbestos mining sites were shut off and the use of asbestos was totally prohibited. Thus, if you would take a closer look on the cases of mesothelioma, you would see that those who have worked in the mining sites were the ones greatly affected by mesothelioma and other forms of asbestos-caused diseases.

Statistics showed that about 85% of individuals who have died form mesothelioma are men. This clearly indicates that men are more prone to being diagnosed with the disease since they are more likely exposed to asbestos in their work places.

Of the total number of individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma, it was shown that 70% of the deaths occurred in men and women whose ages are 65 and beyond. Despite the old age of deaths that are recorded, there are still speculations that deaths due to asbestos and mesothelioma are likely to affect younger population. This is based on the truth that there are homes and academic institutions that were built with the use of asbestos-containing roof shingles, vinyl asbestos floors, and asbestos cement boards.

At present, these materials are already starting to deteriorate in condition. This has caused the fibres to be airborne. More and more Australians are placed in danger of being affected by different asbestos-related diseases, especially mesothelioma.

Queensland is among the Australian states with the highest cases of mesothelioma deaths. If you are living in Brisbane, there are possibilities that your house might be constructed with the use of asbestos-containing materials. Spare your family from the health dangers brought by asbestos fibres. Be excluded from the mesothelioma statistics. Contact professional builders with asbestos removal services.
