What Is Mesothelioma?

.

Lawyers Acting On Behalf Of Mesothelioma Victims Nationwide

In basic medical terms, mesothelioma is a rare cancer in which cells of the mesothelium (a membrane that covers and protects most of the internal organs of the body) become abnormal and malignant.

How rare is the disease? About 2,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in the United States each year.

Which type of mesothelioma or asbestos cancer have you been diagnosed with? Although it is technically a single membrane, parts of the mesothelium have been given different names in relation to the internal organs they surround. For instance, the membrane surrounding the abdominal cavity is called the peritoneum; the part surrounding the lungs and lines the wall of the chest cavity, the pleura; and the part of the membrane that covers and protects the heart is known as the pericardium.

Mesothelioma cancers associated with these parts of the membrane include:

What are the medical options for treatment? Diagnosis and treatment of mesothelioma may vary depending on the type, its aggressiveness and other factors. However, a combination of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and clinical trials is used in most cases.

There are two reasons why: One, the symptoms of the disease and other asbestos-related diseases are similar to many other conditions; and two, the abnormal cancer cells divide without order and migrate from one part of the mesothelium to another with relative ease. In other words, the disease is usually well-established by the time it is diagnosed.

What are the legal options for justice? Although your health and quality of life are of paramount concern right now, time is of the essence and the attorneys at The Gori Law Firm are ready to act immediately on your behalf.

Our law firm works to give living victims the opportunity to assert their rights in a court of law within six to nine months of the date their lawsuit is filed.
