Mesothelioma Causes

Asbestos exposure is the biggest contributor to the development of mesothelioma.[1] Most people with a diagnosis experienced asbestos exposure on the job, where they inhaled the small, damaging fibers without knowing the risks. Other potential mesothelioma causes or risk factors include genetics and family history and exposure to talcum powder contaminated with asbestos.
