The Mesothelioma Victims Center is pointing to a new study in the UK that openly talks about plumbers, electricians, shipyard workers, and trades people being exposed to asbestos with a diagnosis of mesothelioma coming many years or even decades later. The Center is urging the millions of US workers who had moderate to heavy exposure to asbestos decades ago to have an annual medical check-up that includes an x-ray. The group also encourages these types of individuals to be certain to tell their primary care physician about their exposure to asbestos.

Operational note from the Health and Social Care Information Center (HSCIC):
New information from the National Lung Cancer Audit about the diagnosis and treatment of patients with mesothelioma (a cancer involving the outer membrane of the lung) has been published for the first time today by the HSCIC (1).
Mesothelioma is a relatively rare cancer, most common in older men, and closely associated with exposure to asbestos. Occupations like plumbing, electrical-installation, ship-building and railway-engineering are associated with increased risk of developing the disease.
