How to detect malignant mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is one of the most uncommon cancers patients can suffer from in Pittsburgh and across the country. Mesothelioma is most often caused by exposure to asbestos, which has been almost completely banned in various industries, including construction. The disease can show up years after your last known exposure to asbestos.

Understanding mesothelioma diagnoses and life expectancy

As a person with mesothelioma, one of the things you may wonder is how long your life expectancy is. Mesothelioma spreads quickly and is aggressive. For many people, the reality is that it is caught too late to do much to prevent it from spreading.

Get the facts about mesothelioma

Mesothelioma may not be exactly what you think it is. As someone who has been recently diagnosed, you might think it's just another kind of cancer. However, it's typically caused by inhaling asbestos, which could mean that a past employer can be held liable for your current condition. The condition can take many years to form in the body, so you may never be ill when you're on the job.

What is mesothelioma, and who is at risk of developing it?

You worked in the steel industry for many years, which is why it's not necessarily surprising that you've developed mesothelioma. It took time to get a proper diagnosis, but now that you have it, you want to know what you can do to protect yourself and loved ones along with getting compensation for the asbestos exposure that led to your illness.
