What Are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?
Your risk for mesothelioma begins the first time you are exposed to asbestos. However, symptoms can take decades to appear, so it’s important to closely monitor your health after your initial exposure. If you have noticed any of the following symptoms, you may want to contact a medical professional:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Abdominal pain
- Unexplained weight loss
- Difficulty swallowing
- Loss of appetite
These symptoms could be warning signs of other illnesses, so it’s important to undergo an evaluation regardless. Mesothelioma primarily affects those 65 and older, but exposure to asbestos can cause health problems at any age. Even if you were exposed to a small amount of asbestos many years ago, you still carry the risk for mesothelioma.
Which Occupations Pose a High Risk?
Due to its widespread use in plastics and insulation, asbestos is a risk in many occupations. While a low amount of exposure is dangerous, those who have been exposed for longer carry a much higher risk of developing mesothelioma. The following occupations have been found to carry the highest risk of asbestos exposure:
- Construction/industrial workers
If you believe your job has placed you in an environment where you were exposed to asbestos, contact our Macon office today.
