Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that aggressively attacks the body, forming on the lining of the chest, abdomen, heart and in rare cases the testicles.

There are 3000 new cases a year, in the United States and the causes of Mesothelioma are directly linked to asbestos exposure.

Due to the latency period, it can take up to 50 years to fully develop in some victims, making Mesothelioma too far gone to treat.

The Types of Mesothelioma

There are four main types of Mesothelioma diagnosis, each named after the affected areas, within the body.

Pleural Mesothelioma – Lungs
Pleural mesothelioma affects the protective lining of the lungs, accounting for 75 percent of diagnoses, within mesothelioma victims. It’s the most common type of the disease.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma – Abdomen
Peritoneal mesothelioma affects the lining of the abdominal cavity. It’s the second most common form of mesothelioma and often results in regurgitating inhaled asbestos fibers.

Pericardial Mesothelioma – Heart
Pericardial mesothelioma is a rare form of the disease. It starts in the covering around the heart, only 2-5 percent of cases are diagnosed with the disease a year.

Testicular Mesothelioma – Testicles
Testicular mesothelioma is the rarest form of the disease. The cancer forms in the lining that covers the testicles and is extremely difficult to diagnose because of its rarity.

Mesothelioma Symptoms and Treatment

Due to the latency period of mesothelioma, by the time symptoms have surfaced, the disease has often advanced to a stage that’s difficult to treat.

The symptoms will vary, depending on the type of mesothelioma but may include:

  • Chest pains
  • Swelling
  • Coughing
  • Heart murmurs
  • Shortness of breath

Treating mesothelioma can be very tough, even if you were to catch it at an earlier stage. Doctors usually treat the disease through surgery, chemotherapy and targeted therapy. New types of treatment such as biologic therapy and gene therapy are in the clinical trial phase.

Asbestos was commonly used in multiple industries, spanning from construction to mining. OSHA estimates that approximately 1.3 million workers in general industries were exposed to deadly asbestos.

We strive for a movement of change at Mesowatch, our goal is to hold the negligent companies responsible for ruining countless lives. Many of them are spouses or family members and 30 percent of all diagnosis are veterans that served in the United States military.

Occupational Asbestos Exposure & Discovery

Mesowatch holds one of the largest databases on job site asbestos discovery. Our experience, combined with the knowledge of worksites across the United States gives us the ability to come to our client’s aid.

We diligently investigate each case to determine the source of the asbestos and mesothelioma. After documenting work history, our teams of qualified researchers and investigators dig deeper to discover the point of exposure; which products they came into contact with and the companies to hold accountable.

United States Military
Veterans that served in the United States army between 1940-1980 could have come into contact with asbestos. While asbestos isn’t as widely used anymore, it was commonly used in all areas of the military, especially the navy.

Construction
Before the 1980s, commercial and residential construction used thousands of product ranges containing asbestos. Insulation, paints, and pipes are a fraction of some of the many materials used.

Shipyards
The construction of ships and vessels required the ability to resist corrosion and high temperatures, making asbestos the most suitable material to use. Unfortunately, the confined spaces and high asbestos exposure has resulted in tens of thousands of lives being ruined.

Power Plants
Asbestos clothing was used for protection in power and chemical plants from heat and dangerous chemicals. Studies show that power plant workers are one of the highest groups affected by asbestos exposure.

Manufacturing
Auto parts such as brakes and clutches contain asbestos. Auto mechanics are also susceptible as vehicle parts disintegrate and deteriorate. In the metal works industry, asbestos was used for its heat resistant properties to protect workers and machinery.

Family Members
Asbestos fibers can embed themselves on skin, hair, and clothing from work environments. The contaminated skin and clothing can put children and families at risk of secondary exposure to asbestos.

mesothelioma risks asbestos exposure

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths, killing more people than any other form of cancer. It occurs when cancerous cells grow uncontrollably in the lung and form a tumor, resulting in the cancerous cells destroying healthy lung tissue.

Studies show that workers in asbestos-related industries are more likely to develop and die of lung cancer and unfortunately, lung cancer shows signs at least 15 years later than the first contact with asbestos.

Lung Cancer Symptoms

Similarly to mesothelioma, lung cancer has a latency period and doesn’t show immediate signs of the disease. It can take decades for symptoms to show and by that time, the disease often advances and spreads to other parts of the body.

Common lung cancer symptoms include:

  • Persistent coughing
  • Difficulty breathing with chest pains that often feel worse with deep breaths
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Feeling weak and fatigued often
  • Repeated infections such as bronchitis or pneumonia
