What Is The Chance Of Getting Mesothelioma When Exposed To Asbestos, Can It Be Survived?

Postby Prydwen » Fri Sep 29, 2017 12:04 am

If one has been exposed to asbestos for a while, is the chance of them getting mesothelioma inevitable?? If so, is there any chance one could survive it?

thanks heaps

Exposure does not mean cancer.
If that were true, the rules would be much more strict than we have now.
There are many factors and who gets sick is just not understood.
There are several cancers that you can get from asbestos , meso being one.
However it is the worst, since it is a death sentence.
The longest survival I have heard of is six years.
