Information About Mesothelioma For Diagnosed Victims And Their Families From The Mesothelioma Victims Center:
According to the CDC the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. This year between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is attributable to exposure to asbestos.
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
