Mesothelioma, or malignant mesothelioma, impacts the protective lining of internal organs, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal cavity. Initial symptoms encompass pleural effusion, leading to breathlessness and pain, often attributed to exposure to abstractors. This exposure predominately transpires in several sectors such as manufacturing, factories, textile mills, construction, power plants, and shipyards. Furthermore, new installation of asbestos-based products is banned. It is used for fire protection and insulation in various establishments in commercial and residential sectors. Manufacturing of asbestos is prohibited in several regions. However, countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Thailand, India, and Russia are still witnessing the consumption of asbestos in various industries. The U.K. Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reported that in 2024, over 50% of respiratory illness cases were attributed to SWOD mesothelioma. The mortality rate linked to this cancer, along with asbestos-related cancer issues, is declining, while cold-related incidents show a negative trend.
