Tireless Representation from Experienced Lawyers Dedicated to Fighting for the Results that Mesothelioma Victims Deserve
The result of asbestos fibers that become lodged inside of a person's body, mesothelioma is a deadly condition and one that's expensive to treat. To make matters worse, approximately 3,000 individuals are diagnosed with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers each year. Mesothelioma is also challenging to treat and, in many cases, not diagnosed until the condition has reached its advanced stages.
While mesothelioma is terminal in nature, adequate medical treatment can effectively reduce the pain experienced with the condition, as well as reduce the pain and discomfort associated with the condition. Not to mention, several techniques are being developed to reduce the severity of mesothelioma-related conditions. No matter where you or a loved one is with a mesothelioma diagnosis, the attorneys at the Throneberry Law Group are prepared to fight for the results you deserve.
What Is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a deadly type of cancer that surrounds the tissues lining a person's heart, lungs, or other vital organs.
The most common type of mesothelioma is the “pleural” form, which represents approximately 70 percent of all mesothelioma cases. This type of cancer affects the lining of a person's lungs and results in a buildup of fluid in a person's lungs and chest cavity.
Another common type of mesothelioma is “peritoneal,” which comprises approximately 20 percent of all mesothelioma cases. This condition affects a person's peritoneal, which is the sac of tissues surrounding a person's abdomen. Victims of peritoneal mesothelioma often report abdominal pain, bowel problems, fever, swelling, and vomiting.
The least common type of mesothelioma is pericardial, which is cancer that affects the lining located on the outside of a person's heart. Some of the symptoms commonly associated with this condition include coughing, irregular heartbeats, and severe chest pain.
No matter the type of mesothelioma with which a person is diagnosed, it is important to understand that these conditions are exceptionally painful and result in large medical bills.
There are several reasons why mesothelioma is often difficult to diagnose. For one, the symptoms of mesothelioma often do not become visible until 30 to 40 years after exposure has occurred. In many cases, by the time a person is diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is too late to do anything. Another reason that accurate diagnosis may be complicated is that the symptoms of mesothelioma often mirror those of other conditions.
Following a mesothelioma diagnosis, remember it is your right to pursue compensation from the party responsible for your exposure.
