The Mesothelioma Victims Center believes it is incredibly vital that the spouse and adult children of a potential victim know the warning signs of mesothelioma, especially if it is well known the individual had heavy exposure to asbestos in a workplace decades ago. The reason the Center is so incredibly passionate about this is because they are convinced hundreds of families each year lose out on hundreds of thousands, if not more than one million dollars in mesothelioma compensation because the individual was never properly diagnosed with this rare form of cancer.
The Center believes most spouses or adult children might recall their father coming home each night with what would appear to be a white powder on their work clothing, especially if the individual worked at a shipyard, a power plant, a chemical manufacturing facility, construction, or heavy industries. On average, the signs are beginning to show in individuals who worked in said industries between three and four decades ago.

According to the National Institute for Health, "Malignant mesothelioma is a rare but serious type of cancer. Most people who get it have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles. After being exposed to asbestos, it usually takes a long time for the disease to form."
