Ever Eat Asbestos As a Child, This Woman Stricken With Rare Cancer


Ever Eat Asbestos As a Child, This Woman Stricken With Rare Cancer - Asbestos, which is commonly found in building materials, is one of the triggers of cancer. Who would have thought asbestos exposure as a child could trigger disease in a 23-year-old woman, named Danielle Smalley.

Asbestos-related cancer development is found in working men over 75 years. But, Smalley, who had never been a builder, could have cancer-related to asbestos exposure. The reason turned out to be surprising.

It is estimated that asbestos exposure occurs when a small Smalley eats some of these heat-resistant materials, which are actually dangerous for young children. This case is called peritoneal mesothelioma and is rare. As a result of this, the eggs in her ovaries must disappear because of the effects of cancer treatment they must receive.

"This is very surprising. I don't even know what asbestos is. This type of mesothelioma that I have shows that I have swallowed it unconsciously. It could be because I have swallowed something in a friend's house, or in an old warehouse in the park as a child," Smalley said.

In fact, none of his parents run a business material or anything related to asbestos. As is known, the use of asbestos was banned entirely in the UK in 1999.

"It took 20 years for these effects to occur. This rarely happens to women, rarely also happens at my age. Usually, the construction man is a man who experienced it," he said, quoting the words of his doctor.

Initially, Danielle was believed to have irritable bowel syndrome. But doctors at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey, found a tumor behind his intestine.

"I'm terrified. Will I survive? Can I have children?" he said in a sad tone.

Statistics show there are only two other cases of asbestos-related cancer experienced by women under the age of 25 since 2009. More than 50 percent of cases occur in men over 75 years. Similarly, as reported by the Mirror on Monday (01/05/2020).
