Asbestos cancer—known in the medical community as mesothelioma—is a cancer that infects the lining of the lungs. It is caused by one thing: Exposure to asbestos.
When a patient has symptoms of asbestos cancer, the doctor is likely to order blood tests and chest X-rays or CT scans. They will look for abnormalities. If there is a growth or tumor present, it will show up in these tests.
Any cancer diagnosis can be devastating to an individual and their family. Mesothelioma, also known as asbestos cancer, can be especially brutal. But you are not in this fight alone. Doctors will oversee your treatment. Nurses will provide comfort and care. Legal professionals will take your fight to the courts, getting you compensation so you can pay for those doctors and nurses and their treatments.
We all hope that, someday, there will be a cure. Until that day we are still entitled to professional treatment and just compensation.
