About Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer that is often caused by exposure to asbestos, usually as part of the victim's job. Asbestos is a silicate mineral that was used in a number of household, automotive, and industrial items until the 1980s, when the dangers of the mineral were discovered. Those with mesothelioma usually develop cancer in the lining around the abdominal cavity as well as in the lungs and heart. Treatment for any type of cancer can be a lengthy and expensive process, and mesothelioma is especially difficult.

Many manufacturers and businesses used asbestos for its fire and heat resistance properties. At the time, the health risks associated with exposure to asbestos were not widely known. The symptoms of mesothelioma usually do not develop for many years, during which time the companies responsible for manufacturing the asbestos products or the company you worked for might have gone out of business. A skilled attorney will be able to determine who should be held responsible for your mesothelioma. You should not have to face your illness alone.
