Have you been Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?

Has you or a loved one been diagnosed with Mesothelioma? This is a rare, aggressive form of asbestos related cancer that affects roughly 3,000 Americans every year. Although this type of cancer is not nearly as common as many others, it is quite dangerous and has taken thousands of lives in the past.

Unlike other types of cancer, with which the cause is unsure, Mesothelioma is related to asbestos exposure. For this reason, many people contracted the condition through no fault of their own.

Did you know that that Mesothelioma symptoms often times don’t appear for 50 or more years? In other words, you could have been exposed to asbestos many years ago but just now begin to suffer from symptoms of the disease.

Mesothelioma Symptoms

Before we go any further, it is important to note that there is no cure for asbestos. That being said, with more and more cases coming to the forefront there is treatment available.

  • Fatigue
  • Wheezing or cough
