• Miners and Asbestos Cancer | Mesothelioma Treatment …

    Many miners inhaled asbestos fibers on a regular basis as part of their workday in asbestos mines or through the use of mining machinery. The fibers lodged themselves in the miners'' lungs or other internal organs, and the toxic fibers initiated the disease process that results in mesothelioma (cancer of the mesothelium, a membrane that lines the inside of the chest).
