Mesothelioma: What type of treatment is available?

Many Pennsylvania families have been devastated to learn that a member of their household has contracted a deadly disease in the workplace, school or elsewhere. Mesothelioma is a terminal affliction. If you are familiar with the term, you might be among the tens of thousands of people in Pittsburgh or other parts of the country who are trying to cope with this illness.

Understand five-year survival rates with mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that develops as a result of asbestos exposure in most people. Sadly, due to the type of injuries the asbestos causes over time, scar tissues build and cancer is likely to form. Mesothelioma is rare, but it is a devastating diagnosis.

Terminal illness: Adjusting to the life changes it brings

When you heard your doctor say that tests and examination lead him or her to believe that you have a terminal illness, you might have felt like the earth dropped from underneath your feet. You might have sought medical attention because of certain symptoms you were experiencing. If your situation involves suspected asbestos exposure, such symptoms might include chest pain, lingering cough, weight loss or extreme fatigue.

Pennsylvania companies have to follow the rules

If you live or work in a building scheduled to undergo construction, demolition or renovation, your health might be at risk. This is especially true if you're located in an area such as Pittsburgh or another Pennsylvania region where the erection of many structures and buildings was before 1985. As an employee, your employer is legally obligated to inform you if there is a potential asbestos problem in your workplace.
