One of the most devastating of personal injuries is one caused by exposure to asbestos. This exposure can cause mesothelioma, which is a cancer involving the protective lining of the abdomen, lungs, or the cavity around the heart. This protective lining is called the mesothelium.
Causes of Mesothelioma
Often, people aren't aware that they were exposed to the effects of asbestos because its use has been so prevalent. Typically, asbestos was used as insulation, for roofing products, building materials, and in brakes and clutches for automobiles, as well as in a number of other industries.
In most cases, side effects occurred after extensive daily exposure to asbestos for a period of time. Individual susceptibility varied, so actual exposure could be from six months to several years. Mesothelioma can take 15 to 20 years to develop, often long after you have forgotten your exposure to asbestos.
Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Shortness of breath and chest pain are symptoms of mesothelioma, just as they are of a number of other conditions and diseases. Consulting with a doctor upon the advent of these symptoms will help diagnose the condition and help you determine the cause.
After the progression of the cancer, the following symptoms may occur:
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Night sweats
- Increasing shortness of breath
- Voice changes
Some of the symptoms vary depending upon the location of the cancer, so be certain to consult with your doctor.
Treatment of Mesothelioma
As with any type of cancer, treatment is different depending upon the advice of your physician. The National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health says that at present there are three types of standard treatment for Mesothelioma:
- Radiation therapy
At present under investigation and clinical trials are biologic therapy and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
Costs of Mesothelioma
Costs vary from individual to individual, but certainly adequate cancer treatment is expensive. The costs of home health care, travel, medications, and living expenses can rapidly erode a life's savings.
