Know and Detect Mesothelioma Symptoms

Feb 11, 2008
Mesothelioma is one of the deadly illnesses you may contract if you have any history of exposure to asbestos. If you know or suspect this is the case, you should not hesitate to find both a physician who has the latest technology for detecting your mesothelioma symptoms and a lawyer who knows all of the laws relating to your situation.

Both of these are important in that they allow you to receive necessary treatments and possible financial compensation in a timely manner. Your need to act quickly is due to your individual state's laws, which place limits on when you can file a lawsuit. You also cannot be certain of exactly when your illness will reach full development, especially if your first asbestos exposure was at least 15 years ago.

Mesothelioma is related to lung cancer, develops only gradually, and can pose a sudden threat to your life. If you are over the age of 40 and you smoke tobacco, your risk is all that more serious.

To help speed up the process of your case, be sure to provide your attorney with as much information as possible on when and where your asbestos exposure was. Some of the places you are likely to have been exposed include your home (if built before the mid-1970's) and your workplace. Based on what your physician tells you, it may also help to inform your lawyer of your mesothelioma symptoms.

The processing of your case is likely to take many months. To help put you more at ease about your financial situation, your lawyer may charge you contingency fees that depend on the success of your case and are not up-front costs.

There are readily obvious mesothelioma symptoms that you should look for, including short breath, fatigue, anemia, wheezing, hoarseness, coughing (especially coughing up blood), abdominal pain, bowel problems, abnormal weight loss, yellowing eyes/skin, low blood sugar, and internal blood clots. Some of these symptoms may only manifest in severe cases of the illness, and you may need to consult with your physician to know the full nature of your symptoms.

You need a physician to treat the source of your illness rather than just your mesothelioma symptoms themselves. The symptoms can be difficult to detect in their early stages. But if you find a lawyer and physician soon enough that you can trust (you should choose at least two or three ideal candidates for an attorney to interview), your overall process of recovery can be less stressful. You are urged to take action today.
