What happens after I’ve been diagnosed with Mesothelioma?
What different things come into play when dealing with a mesothelioma prognosis?
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with asbestos caused Mesothelioma, usually one of the first questions you or someone would ask is “How long do I have to live?” That might not be the most exciting or encouraging question, but it’s one that’s important and needs to be asked.
It’s not always easy for doctors and oncologists to be able to answer this question directly. The reason being that every case is different and cancer can be chaotic.
“Malignant mesothelioma is extremely aggressive and has a long latency period. Hence, cases are usually not detected until the disease has reached the advanced stages of cancer. As a result the prognosis for such patients is often not favorable; the mesothelioma survival rate following diagnosis is usually just a year or two. That doesn’t mean, however, that there won’t be exceptions, or that the outlook will not improve in years to come, especially as more and better treatments are developed. Overall, the prognosis has been improving for mesothelioma patients over these past few decades.”
How Mesothelioma Affects You.
There has been an estimated over thirty billion dollars ($30,000,000,000) allocated for victims of Mesothelioma. If you or a loved one has contracted any form of cancer in the chest, abdomen, lungs, or surround areas, be sure to have it checked to see if it’s Mesothelioma. Mis-diagnosis are common, but a positive screening could result in your medical costs being completely covered from the settlement.
Don’t let unpaid medical bills pile up and place a financial strain on you and your loved ones. Prioritize possible financial security and file an asbestos claim through the Hal Walker Law.
