The Mesothelioma Center

Woodworkers and carpenters are at risk of developing mesothelioma, rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure that can take 20-50 years to develop. Asbestos was used in all types of constructions before 1980, so residential and commercial woodturners were commonly exposed then. However, some woodworkers are still at risk today when they are remodeling older structures.  Here at The Mesothelioma Center, (Asbestos.com), we provide information on asbestos and we work 1-on-1 with individuals to help them find local doctors, treatment centers, and support groups all at no cost.
