Hilton Head, SC Mesothelioma Claims
If you’ve worked in an environment in which you were exposed to asbestos, you’re likely aware of the serious health concerns the mineral poses. Even with proper safety equipment, asbestos exposure can lead to mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer.
Asbestos exposure is highly dangerous, but some employers don’t treat it as such. If your job has put you at risk by exposing you to this harmful substance, we’re here to help.
What are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma, a cancer caused by inhaling asbestos fibers, is an aggressive and deadly illness. In many cases, symptoms don’t occur until years after the initial point of exposure. Mesothelioma often affects the lungs or abdomen, and can yield different symptoms including:
- Chest pain, shortness of breath, painful cough
- Unexplained weight loss
- Unusual lumps of tissue around the chest
Symptoms of mesothelioma in the abdomen include:
- Abdominal pain/swelling
- Unexplained weight loss
Mesothelioma is especially prevalent in older individuals, but the disease can affect anyone regardless of age. If you notice these symptoms, contact a medical specialist.
Which Occupations Pose a High Risk of Asbestos Exposure?
Asbestos collects in the body starting from the initial exposure. Workers who were exposed over a long period of time generally carry the highest risk of developing mesothelioma. The industries where this is especially prevalent include but are not limited to:
- Military services
