If you worked at one of these or another Florida jobsite where asbestos was present, it is important that you notify your doctor of your possible asbestos exposure so that he or she may be aware of your risk of developing mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, or another asbestos disease and can monitor your health accordingly.  Like most diseases, mesothelioma cancer is most effectively treated when diagnosed at an early stage.
