Mesothelioma Disease Claim
Mesothelioma is a rare and serious form of cancer. When people refer to Mesothelioma disease they are in fact referring to Mesothelioma cancer. Mesothelioma develops malignant cells in the Mesothelioma, which is a thin membrane or protective lining that covers many of the body’s major internal organs. Mesothelioma disease is thought to only be caused by exposure to asbestos and up to 7500 people are treated for the condition in the UK each year. With the latency period for the disease extremely long – between 20 and 50 years – this figure is set to continue if not even rise.
Symptoms of Mesothelioma disease are similar to many less serious conditions and include symptoms such as a dry cough, difficulty breathing and fever. Often those suffering have no idea how serious their condition is until they are diagnosed with Mesothelioma disease. The condition is caused by inhalation of asbestos fibres and dust into the lungs and this is normally associated with workmen such as miners or construction workers, who before legislation were exposed to the substance on a day-to-day basis.
People who suffer from Mesothelioma have usually come into contact with asbestos during the course of their working life. Employers and authorities have insurance in place to provide compensation for asbestos victims, who through no fault of their own are suffering from serious health difficulties. Amanda Cunliffe Solicitors are experts in Mesothelioma disease claim and Mesothelioma compensation.
There are four main types of Mesothelioma disease:
- Pleural Mesothelioma
- Peritoneal Mesothelioma
- Pericardial Mesothelioma
- Testicular Mesothelioma
Pleural Mesothelioma – the most common form of the disease, it develops in the pleura, the membrane lining the lungs.
Peritoneal Mesothelioma – develops in the lining/membrane of the abdomen.
Pericardial Mesothelioma – develops in the pericardium, the membrane surrounding the heart. Pericardial Mesothelioma is very rare.
Testicular Mesothelioma – Again extremely rare, testicular Mesothelioma develops in the membrane surrounding the testicles.
All four forms are caused by exposure to asbestos. If you have been diagnosed with any of the above it is worth a call to us today for confidential advice on your situation. Employers and local authorities have insurance in place to provide compensation to victims of asbestos inhalation.
