Mesothelioma Claims

Mesothelioma is a form of lung cancer that develops as a result of exposure to asbestos.

Asbestos was used until the late 1990s as an insulating material however exposure to the hazardous substance has been proven to cause a whole host of illnesses, specifically mesothelioma.

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that affects the lining that covers the outer surface of most organs. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos.

There are two types of the cancer.Pleural mesothelioma is the most common type and it develops in the tissue that covers the lungs. Peritoneal mesothelioma develops in the lining of the abdomen.

Due to the severity of the illness Mesothelioma can take between 20-50 years to develop after the original exposure.

Mesothelioma Symptoms

The symptoms for pleural mesothelioma are a pain in the lower back and chest. You will feel a shortness of breath and suffer from a high temperature and persistent cough.

As a different form of cancer peritoneal mesothelioma has different symptoms including a painful swelling of the abdomen with nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
