Aggressive Representation For An Aggressive Disease

Those who suffer from mesothelioma know it is a difficult disease to beat. Oftentimes, the disease goes undetected until its later stages, making it even more difficult to overcome. At the Throneberry Law Group, we walk you through the steps to get the highest-quality medical treatment to extend your life span and help alleviate painful suffering, while simultaneously fighting for the rightful compensation you and your family deserve.

What Is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a devastating cancer that affects tissue around the lungs, heart and other internal organs. It is only caused by exposure to asbestos, and often occurs 30-40 years after that exposure. The disease is eventually fatal, but proper treatment can potentially extend your life by years, and significantly ease the pain and symptoms that accompany the illness.

Mesothelioma is a rare disease, with only about 3000 new cases diagnosed every year. It can take three primary forms, each with their own symptoms:

  • Pleural mesothelioma accounts for over 70 percent of mesothelioma cases, and affects the lining around the lungs. Symptoms include chest pain, breathing problems and fluid in the chest cavity.
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma affects the tissue around your abdominal organs. This form of the disease affects around 20 percent of cases, and is accompanied by abdominal pain and swelling, as well as vomiting, fever and bowel problems.
  • Pericardial mesothelioma is the rarest form of the disease, affecting the protective lining that surrounds the heart. Symptoms include chest pain, cough and irregular heartbeat.
