What is Mesothelioma?

A mesothelioma diagnosis changes everything. Sadly, approximately 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with this aggressive form of cancer every year. While no amount of compensation can buy you or your loved one a clean bill of health, filing a mesothelioma claim can help alleviate your financial burden so you can focus on the things that matter most.

The mesothelioma attorneys at Morgan & Morgan specialize in asbestos claims, helping the victims of asbestos exposure and their families receive compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.

  • What is Mesothelioma Cancer?

    Mesothelioma is a rare but dangerous type of cancer that develops from the mesothelium – a thin layer of tissue that covers many of your internal organs. Doctors often treat the condition with chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. While these treatments can cease the growth of tumors, researchers have yet to find a cure for the disease.

  • What Causes Mesothelioma?

    Unlike many other forms of cancer, there is only one known cause of mesothelioma: exposure to asbestos. The disease progresses as follows:

    • A person inhales or swallows asbestos fibers
    • The fibers become lodged in the linings of the lungs, heart, or abdomen
    • Over time, the fibers cause inflammation in the mesothelium
    • Eventually, tumors form on the damaged mesothelium
  • What Are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

    The symptoms of mesothelioma vary depending on where the cancer is located. However, in the early stages, patients often experience dry coughing, wheezing, chest pain, abdominal pain, and shortness of breath. In the later stages, patients may experience increased pain, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, and loss of appetite.

  • How Can a Mesothelioma Lawyer Help?

    Naturally, after a mesothelioma diagnosis, you’d want to focus on your health. While that’s certainly a top priority, you should also consider contacting a mesothelioma attorney right away – we understand how serious mesothelioma is and are here for you in your time of need. The fact is, many companies have knowingly produced, distributed, or otherwise used asbestos products while concealing or ignoring their risks. By filing a claim, you can secure your family’s financial future and hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.
