Do You Have A Pericardial Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

.

What Is Pericardial Mesothelioma?

meso

Pericardial mesothelioma develops in the pericardium, a fluid-filled lining that surrounds and protects the heart. It is one of the rarest forms of mesothelioma, and it is generally seen only in patients who have had an extended amount of exposure to asbestos.

This form of mesothelioma is strongly associated with long-term asbestos exposure. In these cases, asbestos fibers become embedded in the pericardium. Once there, their naturally jagged shape causes inflammation to occur. Over time, scar tissue builds up as a result of the inflammation, and malignant cancer cells can develop. If they do, this leads to the pericardial mesothelioma diagnosis.

Some of the symptoms associated with pericardial mesothelioma include:

  • Chest pain
  • Persistent coughing
  • Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing normally
  • Fever/night sweats
