What is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a cancer that is usually caused by the prior exposure to asbestos. Although asbestos is not the only cause of Mesothelioma it is the most common. If Mesothelioma goes untreated the malignant cells can damage nearby tissues in the body or, even worse, can multiply and spread to other parts of the body.
Some common symptoms of Mesothelioma are similar to other diseases and usually people do not feel the effects of Mesothelioma until 20 to 50 years after exposure.
Our Mesothelioma investigators can find the source of your asbestos exposure even though it may not be obvious to you at the time you call or contact us online.
Methods of diagnosing Mesothelioma include:
- Medical History Review
- Physical Exam
- Diagnostic Surgery
Where in the Body is Mesothelioma Found?
Mesothelioma can be found in the protective membrane that lines most of the body’s internal organs. 70 percent of Mesothelioma cases are Pleural Mesothelioma, and are found in the pleura, which is the lining of the lungs.
Other areas where the disease occurs are the Peritoneum, the lining of the abdominal cavity, and in the Pericardium, the sack that surrounds the heart.
What is Asbestos and Where Can it be Found?
Asbestos is a group of minerals found within microscopic fibers. Asbestos has been used in areas like construction and automotive industries, because the fibers are resistant to heat, fire and the fibers do not conduct electricity. Some other areas here asbestos has been used are:
- Buildings, and building insulation
- Industrial facilities
- Brake pads
- Woven into fabrics and mats
- As structure protection from extreme heat and fire.
- Some building products and insulation materials in homes built before 1970
The use of asbestos has been banned from many products since July 1989. The fibers can still be found in many old structures but if the structure is still in good condition it may not be worth the risk releasing asbestos fibers into the air.
