Mesothelioma

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 necessary to get the highest-quality medical treatment possible. We want to help alleviate your painful suffering, while simultaneously fighting for the rightful compensation you and your family deserve.

What is Mesothelioma?

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

Mesothelioma is a rare disease, with only about 3,000 new cases diagnosed every year. It can take three primary forms, each with its own symptoms:

  • Pleural mesothelioma accounts for over 70% 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 the abdominal organs. This form of the disease is found in around 20% 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.

Visit our Diagnosing Mesothelioma page to learn more about how to determine which form of the disease may be affecting you or your loved one.

The Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Some of the most common symptoms associated with mesothelioma include the following:

  • Dry coughing
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Fluid around the lungs
  • Muscle weakness
  • Pain in abdomen or chest
  • Respiratory problems
  • Shortness of breath

The symptoms associated with mesothelioma typically do not surface until tumors related to the condition grow and spread throughout the body. In many instances, mesothelioma is not diagnosed until 20 to 50 years after asbestos exposure occurs. For this reason, many people diagnosed with mesothelioma are over the age of 60.
