If you are exposed to asbestos will you develop mesothelioma?

Your risk of developing the disease is increased, but most people exposed to asbestos never develop it.

Mesothelioma is associated with long exposures at high levels, although even at low levels the risk is not zero, but very, very low.

I have seen several women die from it and their only exposure was washing their husband’s clothes who were exposed to it.
