Mesothelioma is different than other types of cancer because it is caused by environmental exposure and not hereditary traits. In between the years of 1979 and 2001, at least 43,000 people died for mesothelioma, asbestos cancer, or asbestosis. However, it is important to keep in mind that reporting of the disease deaths did not begin until the late 1990’s. Asbestos was widely used in manufacturing of buildings, automotive, and shipbuilding. Asbestos is a group of minerals that was used due to it being resistant to heat and corrosion. This once though wonderful product was later found to cause horrible injuries to workers who were exposed to asbestos during manufacturing or construction projects. Asbestos is known to causes asbestosis, lung cancer, and another type of cancer called mesothelioma (a form of cancer that impacts the organs and lungs.) Mesothelioma claims from asbestos exposure, time is critical if your loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma. Costly medical treatments must begin immediately to slow this deadly cancer and treat the tremendous pain and suffering.
Types of Mesothelioma
The Mesothelioma Research Foundation of America estimates that over 30 million people in the U.S. have been exposed to asbestos over the last several decades. Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma (cancer of the lining around the lungs or internal organs) and asbestosis (a debilitating lung disease). The trick of mesothelioma litigation is not the medical connection, but identifying how the person was exposed. This task is more difficult because the symptoms sometimes do not develop until 10, 20 or even 40 years after exposure. While the onset might take a long duration to show itself the disease becomes very progressive once it begins to spread. The common types of mesothelioma recognized by the medical community include:
