How can veterans combat mesothelioma?

| Nov 25, 2019 | Uncategorized |

When you enlisted for military service, you likely understood that some of your assignments could be dangerous. Although you knew you might be deployed to a war zone or have to risk your life for someone in your unit, you likely never considered how your dedication to your country could cause cancer.

Unfortunately, many service members suffer from mesothelioma due to exposure to asbestos throughout their military careers. And certain positions could have increased your cancer risk without your knowledge.

Potentially decades after the end of your active duty assignment, you may remain unaware of any abnormal cell growth and division within your body. Yet, your military experience could be of interest to medical providers responsible for your care.

Some military jobs increased soldiers’ risks of asbestos exposure

Historically, many construction materials contained asbestos. In a remodeling or demolition process, this carcinogenic mineral may have reached your lungs through its release into the air.

In addition to working with insulation, roofing and flooring, you would be wise to speak with your doctor about your risk of developing mesothelioma if your assignment was in a:

  • Mill
  • Mine
  • Shipyard

If you repaired vehicles, asbestos-contaminated friction materials in parts like clutches and brake linings could also negatively affect your health.

There is no doubt that a cancer diagnosis can challenge mental resolve – even that of our nation’s veterans. Thankfully, you may be eligible for compensation to cover the cost of your medical expenses and support your family as you continue to fight.
