How is Mesothelioma Caused?
Malignant mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer that is difficult to accurately diagnose and is unresponsive to many therapies. It occurs in the pleura, or lining of the lung, and, in very rare cases, in other areas of the body as well. While malignant mesothelioma remains an uncommon cancer, its documented three-fold increase in males between 1970 and 1984 can be traced to environmental and occupational exposure.
Asbestos Products Have Been Banned Since 1975
Asbestos products, which were used primarily for insulation and heat retardation, have been banned in construction since 1975.
Asbestos still presents a danger to anyone working in buildings containing asbestos, including:
- Demolition work
Mesothelioma is difficult to diagnose and even harder to treat. Patients often suffer from a great deal of pain and face a poor treatment outcome. It is important to be aware of the symptoms of mesothelioma, especially if you have worked in asbestos-containing environments.
Early Detection of Mesothelioma is Key
Early symptoms of mesothelioma can be very non-specific and are often ignored. Most people with this type of cancer have definitive symptoms only two or three months before the cancer is found. Unfortunately, by then it is often advanced.
These symptoms can also have other origins. But if you have worked with asbestos and have any of these symptoms, you should see your doctor immediately. Our Houston personal injury attorneys at Fleming | Nolen | Jez, L.L.P. believe anyone who has developed mesothelioma subsequent to asbestos exposure should have their case evaluated.
