Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an aggressive type of cancer that usually occurs in the lungs but can also develop in the abdomen, heart, or testicles. Almost all cases of mesothelioma develop from asbestos exposure. What makes mesothelioma hard to diagnose is that symptoms do not usually begin to appear until more than 20 years after someone has been exposed to asbestos. Many of the first symptoms of the disease are very similar to common illnesses that are less severe, so many people do not visit a doctor until their condition has become more serious. Often, symptoms do not appear until the condition has become more serious and advanced.

Some of the most frequently seen initial symptoms of mesothelioma are as follows:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Chest pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Problems swallowing
  • Unexplained weight loss

Whenever someone experiences any of the above symptoms and also knows that they have a history of exposure to asbestos, they should seek a medical evaluation. A doctor could examine them, make a diagnosis, and offer treatment options.

After speaking with a doctor, the patient should consider consulting a well-informed lawyer with experience handling mesothelioma claims in Cherry Hill. With over 30 years of experience handling these cases, Dave Halpern and his team of dedicated paralegals understand what mesothelioma patients are going through. We will work tirelessly to fight for a fair recovery to make the patient’s life more comfortable and help their family during this challenging time.

 

People Who Are at Risk of Developing Mesothelioma

Asbestos is a heat-resistant mineral fiber that was commonly used in construction materials and insulation. Although the federal government has essentially banned the use of asbestos in newer construction, people who work in certain occupations still have a higher risk of exposure. For example:

  • Miners
  • Plumbers
  • Insulators
  • Electricians
  • Ship builders
  • Navy personnel
  • Remodelers of old homes

In addition, the longer the exposure, the greater the likelihood of developing mesothelioma. People can also develop mesothelioma through secondary exposure—for example through fibers on clothes—by living with someone who has high asbestos exposure through their job.

If someone suspects they have a history of asbestos exposure leading to a recent mesothelioma diagnosis, they should meet with a knowledgeable Cherry Hill mesothelioma attorney to learn more about how to proceed with a civil claim.
