Nitro, WV Mesothelioma Attorney
Being exposed to asbestos can have deadly consequences; the microscopic mineral is made of thin fibers and is easily transmitted through the air. Inhaling these fibers can cause the dangerous asbestos material to lodge in an individual's lungs. Over time, this can cause serious asbestos-related diseases.
Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer affecting the membrane lining of the lungs and abdomen. Malignant mesothelioma is the most serious of all asbestos-related diseases. Exposure to asbestos is the primary cause and risk factor for mesothelioma.
Making a correct mesothelioma diagnosis is particularly difficult for doctors because the disease often presents with symptoms that mimic other common ailments. There is currently no known cure for mesothelioma, but treatments such as surgery and chemotherapy can help to improve the typical mesothelioma prognosis and even increase one's life expectancy.
If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, you likely have many questions. Receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis is overwhelming news and is typically related to asbestos exposures that occurred decades earlier.
