Mesothelioma Cancer And Symptoms: How Asbestos Exposure Can Kill You


Individuals constantly exposed to asbestos particles, dust and fibers have higher risks of contracting the dangerous disease called mesothelioma cancer, a rare form of cancer affecting the tissues lining the lungs, heart and stomach, and which could cause permanent disability or even death if left untreated.

Global figures of mesothelioma patients are rising at an alarming rate and medical experts worldwide are now rushing to discover ways to treat the sickness. A study conducted in 2008 showed that there were approximately 174,300 mesothelioma cases from 56 countries that “use asbestos at substantial levels but report no cases of the disease.” Among 33 countries surveyed that did not report any mesothelioma cases, the researchers estimated a total of 38,900 deaths.

Mesothelioma has three types, and these are pleural mesothelioma (affecting the linings of the lung), peritoneal mesothelioma (stomach or abdominal cavity) and pericardial mesothelioma (heart lining). Its most common symptoms include shortness of breath, chest pains, massive and unexplained weight loss, a persistent cough and difficulty swallowing food.

To slow down mesothelioma’s rapid infection rate, it is essential for the public, especially those constantly exposed to asbestos fibers and other asbestos-made products, to know more about the deadly disease. In response to this and as part of his social responsibility, American lawyer Rod de Llano has sponsored the creation of the website Mesothelioma Medical (, an online page where key information about the illness is available to the public for free.

The website gives readers a clear definition and description of the fatal cancer, the three types of mesothelioma, the symptoms of mesothelioma, optional treatments, post-diagnosis peer support, financial support and spiritual psychological support.

The website likewise gives legal guidance to individuals who contracted the disease due to constant exposure to asbestos at their work places. These legal tips include, among others, background data on legal violations on asbestos exposure, advantages and disadvantages of pursuing a lawsuit, protracted litigation procedures, legal settlements, available mesothelioma and asbestos lawyers, compensation from winning a lawsuit and other legal options available to sick individuals.
