Is There a Specific Amount of Asbestos Exposure Needed to Cause Mesothelioma?

The Connection Between Asbestos and Mesothelioma

Is there a specific amount of asbestos exposure needed to cause mesothelioma? The answer is no. There is no magic number or amount that will lead to mesothelioma. Every person reacts differently to asbestos. Some individuals may be exposed for prolonged periods of time and never develop health problems while others may have had a few months of exposure and develop mesothelioma. The key is to remember that any amount of asbestos exposure can possibly cause someone to develop mesothelioma.
