Asbestos Exposure Can Cause Mesothelioma — A Very Aggressive Cancer
Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer that is often not diagnosed until it has reached an advanced stage. It is a rare disease that is caused primarily by exposure to asbestos. People who inhale or ingest asbestos fibers are at the greatest risk for developing mesothelioma.
Typically, workers in certain occupations experience the highest exposure to asbestos. Their families may also inhale or ingest asbestos fibers by coming into contact with the workers and their clothing. Even the person washing the clothing that contains asbestos fibers is at great risk of inhaling the particles.
Asbestos Fibers Can Cause Cancer In The Lungs, Stomach And Heart Lining
The most common type of mesothelioma occurs in the lungs. Inhaled asbestos fibers scar the lung tissue, eventually resulting in lung scarring (asbestosis) or pleural mesothelioma. Ingested asbestos fibers can settle in the abdominal cavity, scarring that tissue much like it scars lung tissue. The result can be peritoneal mesothelioma. Less common is pericardial mesothelioma, affecting the tissue around the heart.
Compensation for people with mesothelioma can cover their medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and losses suffered by their families. We represent mesothelioma victims as well as families who have lost a loved one to wrongful death from mesothelioma.
