A report from a law firm in the United States has detailed how a former architect has died from asbestos cancer, also known as mesothelioma. The man had worked as an architect almost four decades ago, but died just two months after he was diagnosed.

According to the law firm the man was required to be on site at a variety of construction sites as part of his job as an architect, and with asbestos being present at construction sites in many different areas he would have been exposed on a regular basis to this deadly killer.

Asbestos was used in many different applications up until the 1980s, and on construction sites it was used in many different areas, putting construction workers in different trades at risk as well as those in related trades such as architects.

Exposure to asbestos on a longer term basis or at high levels can cause a range of serious health problems, and this includes malignant mesothelioma.
