Dr. Amit N. Patel is a cardiothoracic surgeon who specializes in heart surgery, treating heart failure, and the treatment of cardiothoracic cancers like mesothelioma. Mesothelioma treatment is also among Dr. Patel’s research interests, especially so-called “hyperthermic chemotherapy.” In this procedure, a warmed solution of anti-cancer drugs is washed over a patient’s tissue or organs where cancer cells are present. The treatment may be helpful in killing microscopic cancer cells left behind when a cancerous tumor is removed.

Mesothelioma Resources

Mesothelioma is a rare and very serious form of cancer found in the lining surrounding the lungs, the stomach, the testes, or the heart. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos.

It often takes 10 to 60 years after exposure to asbestos before the symptoms of mesothelioma develop. This period of time is referred to as a latency period. Because of the latency period, the disease commonly affects men and women that are at least 50 years of age and that worked with asbestos between 10 and 60 years ago.

Utah Mesothelioma Facts

Today, the use of asbestos and the handling of asbestos materials are regulated in the United States but its use is not banned. It is recognized as a hazardous material and is monitored by OSHA and the EPA but exposure risks still exist. The United States still consumes 30 million pounds of new asbestos per year. Additionally, many old homes, factories, schools, warehouses, and commercial buildings still contain old asbestos products.

The average incidence rate of mesothelioma in the United States is 1 / 100,000 - the state of Utah is below the National average.

There are a number of different jobs that caused a larger amount of exposure to asbestos on a more frequent basis. Below you will find today's employment numbers for several of these high risk jobs in Utah:

Occupation 2008 Utah Employment
Construction 90,469
Mechanical Engineers 2,680
Electricians 9,240
Teachers & Instructors 14,370
Mechanics & Technicians 8,010
Plumbers, Pipefitters & Steamfitters 7,830
