NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are urging a US Navy Veteran or a shipyard-maritime worker who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 in order to avoid the Internet minefield of mesothelioma lawyers. We have two primary goals for a US Navy Veteran, shipyard worker, or a maritime worker with recently diagnosed mesothelioma or their family members:

The Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to share a story about how mesothelioma can seem like it appears out of nowhere. Of the roughly 3,000 US citizens who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma each year, about 40% will be Navy Veterans, shipyard workers, or maritime workers. In one instance, the Center assisted a middle-aged man who as a high school kid in New England who was talked into cleaning out the insulation in the engine room of a fishing boat. The job took place on a Saturday and Sunday; thirty-five years later he was diagnosed with mesothelioma. He never had come into contact with asbestos after that one weekend.
The Center says, "While the vast majority of Navy Veterans, shipyard workers, and maritime workers will never develop mesothelioma, typically a chest x-ray will reveal asbestos in their lungs if they had exposure. We are urging people like this to get an annual chest x-ray to make certain they do not have an asbestos related illness because of their exposure to asbestos.
"If a medical doctor confirms mesothelioma or suggests it is a distinct possibility, we are urging the family members of the Veteran, shipyard, or maritime worker to call us at 800-714-0303 so they can get the best possible advice about lawyers, treatment options, and how to care for their loved one. There is no service equal to ours in the United States when it comes to the resources we can bring to the table for a diagnosed person with mesothelioma." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
According to the CDC the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.
However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a shipyard worker or US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing workers, pulp or paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, construction workers, insulators, rail road worker, roofers, or firemen. As a rule, these types of workers were exposed to asbestos in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. US Navy Veterans make up about one third of all US Citizens who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
