Facts about San Bernardino Mesothelioma Cases
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that has become more widely known in recent years. It develops from the protective lining around many of the body's internal organs. Most commonly, it is found in the outer lining of the lungs and internal chest wall. Asbestos has been found to be the most common factor linked with mesothelioma, and the symptoms of mesothelioma can show up decades after an individual is first exposed to asbestos.
If you or someone you know fears that they may have mesothelioma, a competent San Bernardino personal injury attorney should be contacted, to assist in legal actions that may need to be taken. As with
defective drugs, mesothelioma has been in the news frequently. This attention has been caused by the large number of successful lawsuits against
wrongful exposure to asbestos. Many times the prognosis for a victim of mesothelioma is poor. At the Pacific Attorney Group, we would like you to know that if you have been wrongfully exposed, we are ready to stand up for your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Signs and Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Although the symptoms of mesothelioma can be varied and may not show up until years later, there are common symptoms that you should know:
- Shortness of breath
- Pains in the chest
- Weight loss
- Abdominal swelling or pain
- Anemia or fatigue
- Blood clotting abnormalities
- Swelling of the neck or face
- A mass in the abdomen
- Problems with bowel function
Symptoms may be different from person to person, but the cause remains the same. If you have been exposed to asbestos or even suspect that this is the case, it is important to see your doctor and let him know your symptoms. Shipyard workers, those who work in asbestos mills and mines, producers of asbestos products, workers in the heating and construction industries and other tradespersons, are those most commonly afflicted with mesothelioma.
Even exposures of a short duration can cause the disease and therefore family members or those close to asbestos workers can be affected.
