The primary cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos particles. However, the likelihood of developing mesothelioma depends on the length of time and the quantity of asbestos fibers a person inhaled over that period. As a result, workers involved in asbestos-related settings for a significant amount of time have the highest risk of developing mesothelioma.
People who live close to asbestos manufacturing areas or are indirectly exposed to the material through their skin, hair, or clothing are also at risk of developing mesothelioma. Unfortunately, mesothelioma takes years, often decades, to form, meaning the cancer can lie dormant for up to 50 years before symptoms surface.
However, not every person who is exposed to asbestos will develop mesothelioma - only about 10 percent of asbestos-exposed workers do. Still, a strong link between the substance and the disease exists, as about 80 percent of people with pleural mesothelioma have a definite asbestos history. Other people develop the condition based on indirect exposure. Still others get it through means that have nothing to do with asbestos.
