Mesothelioma is a type of cancer related to human asbestos exposure. It is incurable and often terminal. Asbestos causes mesothelioma by irritating the lining of the organs, such as the lungs or heart, and forming malignant tumors over time. It can take decades from the date of asbestos exposure for a victim to develop mesothelioma.

Victims with mesothelioma may be eligible for financial compensation from the entities that originally exposed them to asbestos.

What Is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a disease that comes from inhaling asbestos fibers into the body. When a person breathes in microscopic asbestos particles, they can lodge in the lining of the lungs and other organs, staying there for years. These particles can aggravate the surrounding tissues enough to cause inflammation and tumor growth. Unfortunately, malignant mesothelioma tumors are incurable. However, treatments for mesothelioma, such as surgeries and chemotherapy, can prolong life. Common symptoms associated with mesothelioma are shortness of breath, persistent cough, chest pain and unexplained lumps under the skin on the chest.
