Massachusetts Mesothelioma Lawyer
Mesothelioma is an aggressive and inoperable form of asbestos cancer that affects close to 3,000 Americans every year – hard-working people who contracted this tragic condition through no fault of their own. Due to its long latency period, symptoms of mesothelioma typically do not appear for up to 50 years from the first exposure to asbestos. Unfortunately, there is no known cure; only palliative treatments to ease the pain and suffering are available.
What are the symptoms of mesothelioma?
- Chest wall pain
- Pleural effusion or fluid surrounding the lung
- Shortness of breath
- Fatigue or anemia
- Wheezing, hoarseness or cough
- Coughing up blood
What should you do if you think you have a case of mesothelioma?

While at the moment there is no known cure, there are steps you can take to minimize associated pain and discomfort – the first is to be seen by an experienced oncologist who is familiar with mesothelioma cases.
Your next priority should be to contact an experienced mesothelioma attorney.
