How can you prevent mesothelioma after asbestos exposure?

For people who are aware that they’ve been exposed to asbestos, preventing the associated diseases can be a serious concern. Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer to their questions. Once asbestos has accumulated in the body, there’s no known way either to remove it or to prevent mesothelioma.

Asbestos begins to cause damage when tiny fibers are swallowed or inhaled, and they make their way through the lungs or other tissue to the mesothelium. This is a thin membrane that surrounds the lungs and other organs of the torso. While it’s rare for it to develop cancer, asbestos fibers can cause it to do so. As they linger in the body, they irritate the cells and cause mutations to their DNA. Eventually, a damaged cell may lose its ability to self-regulate and, instead of dying off, begins multiplying uncontrollably. This process can take decades to complete, but when it does, mesothelioma can grow rapidly.
Only 10 to 20% of people with high levels of asbestos exposure get mesothelioma, but the reasons that some people are immune are likely genetic.

How can you prevent mesothelioma after asbestos exposure?

There’s no behavior you can engage in that’s known to bring your risk down to that of someone who was never exposed. Not smoking is crucial, since smoking and asbestos together present greater risk than either alone. And as with any high-risk population, people who’ve inhaled asbestos should pursue a healthy lifestyle that includes eating antioxidant foods. Finally, people in this group should be aware of the risk and get screened often for signs of cancer, since early detection is crucial to survival.
