Mesothelioma is a serious condition, but not everyone recognizes when they
have it so they don’t always take the proper steps to seek treatment.
There are times when a person with mesothelioma mistakes the symptoms
with other possible conditions. This is why it is so important to make
sure you and your loved ones are aware of the symptoms associated with
mesothelioma. By knowing the symptoms, you can take action whenever something happens.
Some of the most common symptoms of mesothelioma include:
- Chest or lower back pain
- Trouble breathing
- Trouble swallowing
- Swelling in arms or face
- Weight loss
- Excessive sweating
Because mesothelioma is such a serious condition, knowing the symptoms
could be the difference between early diagnosis and being too late to
find a treatment. With new clinical studies finding more and more possible
treatment options, early detection is becoming increasingly important.
Understanding these symptoms is the first step in making sure you or your
loved one get the medical attention you need during this time.
Mesothelioma is developed as a result of asbestos exposure, usually in
older buildings that used products containing asbestos. It was a popular
product for its fire resistant characteristics and ability to withstand
extreme temperatures. Unfortunately, individuals who work in older buildings
and are not provided proper equipment become susceptible to asbestos exposure
as soon as the fibers start traveling through the air.
At Worthington & Caron, we are deeply committed to protecting the rights
of mesothelioma patients. We know that any time someone is exposed to
asbestos, they are at risk of potential damages. For this reason, we advocate
on behalf of our clients so they know someone is by their side and working
to obtain justice for them.
