What is Mesothelioma? Is it a disease?

No, it’s not a disease, Mesothelioma is a highly uncommon and dangerous, often deadly form of cancer that is caused from Asbestos exposure. Typically, Mesothelioma forms in the respiratory system and in the surrounding areas, like the heart, lungs, chest and abdomen. 3,200 people are diagnosed each year in the United States with this disease.

What Causes Mesothelioma? What Can I do to Avoid Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. In the early parts of the industrial revolution here in the United States and up until the early 1980s, asbestos was a very popular insulation component used in housing, automotive work, military vehicles and structures, and other places. The tiny micro-fibers of asbestos float around in the air and look very similar to dust. It is impossible to distinguish or even notice asbestos in the air in the midst of other dust and dirt particles. Asbestos would then settle in your lungs, and the tiny fiber would eventually develop into a cancer – Mesothelioma.

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.  There are great doctors in the United States that are treating folks that have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma.  Please feel free to check our site to see that list of doctors.
