Asbestos exposure has been confirmed in at least 400 New York state public buildings, workplaces, and other institutions. While this list includes everything from churches to restaurants, to homes, the highest risk areas including shipyards, talc mines, construction sites, oil refineries, chemical operations, and power plants. Older buildings, including schools, projects, and public centers, are also potential sites of asbestos exposure. Moreover, the asbestos fallout from the tragedy at the World Trade Center also poses a threat to the residents in this area of New York City.

Between 1980 and 2000, over 400 people died of asbestos related diseases in New York City alone, with the highest concentration of these deaths in the working class borough of Queens. Of these deaths, most were caused by mesothelioma, a rare but vicious form of cancer almost exclusively caused by asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma cancer attacks the lining of the lungs, the heart, or the stomach cavity. While this aggressive cancer is difficult to diagnose and treat, mesothelioma treatment centers in New York are proud to offer some of the very best treatment by top doctors and other medical professionals with extensive experience helping people with mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma Treatment & Diagnosis

If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos on the job or in your home environment, you are encouraged to seek regular medical check-ups to ensure your lung health. If you develop symptoms that may possibly indicate asbestosis or mesothelioma, it is a good idea to contact a mesothelioma treatment center, who can provide the best care, from diagnosis to treatment.
