Updated on December 24, 2010

Mesothelioma Asbestos Exposure

This article is about Mesothelioma Symptoms, Asbestosis, Asbestosis Claims and Asbestosis Compensation.

Mesothelioma is a disease and rare cancer caused by the exposure to Asbestos. Mesothelioma causes cancer in the protective lining - Mesothelium which covers the internal organs of the body. It has become the topic of many lawsuits, debates and public scrutiny because it is caused by Asbestos Exposure. Asbestos is a material that was used in home construction for many years throughout the world. Mesothelioma is also a job site disease because many people, in certain jobs, are subject to Asbestos exposure and Mesothelioma symptoms are very close to those caused by Asbestosis.

Mesothelioma Symptoms

Mesothelioma primarily effects the pluera or the outer lining of the lungs and chest wall, the lining of the abdominal cavity, heart, pericardium, or tunica vaginalis. One of the biggest issues is that many times the signs and Mesothelioma symptoms do not show themselves for a long time - 20 to 50 years after exposure and the initial symptoms of Mesothelioma are shortness of breath, cough and chest pain which are common to many other diseases and problems that might not be so serious.

Mesothelioma is one of the largest medical health concerns of our time and if you are seeing Mesothelioma symptoms in yourself or anyone you know that has been exposed to Asbestos anytime in their life, please see a Doctor immediately.

Asbestosis and Asbestosis Claims

Asbestosis is a disease that is also caused by exposure to Asbestos and is, in many cases, a precursor to Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer. It is characterized by chronic inflammation and effects the parenchymal tissue in the lungs. This disease is part of an occupational hazard because it occurs in people who have been exposed to Asbestos in their jobs. Just like Mesothelioma Symptoms, the signs and symptoms of Asbestosis do not occur until several years after initial exposure and may result in respiratory failure.

During recent times, with the acceptance of Asbestos as a carcinogen and a severe health risk, lawsuits and Asbestosis Claims have seen a sharp rise. Asbestosis claims are a little difficult due to the statute of limitations problem. In cases of Mesothelioma symptoms and Asbestosis, you may be able to file Asbestosis Claims if the statute of limitations begins at the point of diagnosis. You must also be able to prove the exact source of the Asbestos exposure and an experienced attorney can help you file those Asbestosis claims.

Asbestosis Compensation

Due to an increasing amount of Asbestosis claims in the United States, the government is considering forming an Asbestosis bankruptcy fund. In this case, the procedure for getting Asbestosis compensation will change. This is the reason to talk to a good and experienced Asbestosis Lawyer.

Different countries have different rules for claiming Asbestosis Compensation. Generally, you will be compensated for the losses you suffered due to Asbestosis. Because this is such a serious disease, you should receive asbestosis compensation if you or your family have been affected by Asbestos exposure. Please talk to a competent lawyer in your country to find out how much Asbestosis compensation you deserve.

Asbestosis Symptoms

Remember Asbestosis causes lung scarring and the symptoms may not appear until after many years of initial asbestos exposure. Asbestosis symptoms are somewhat similar to Mesothelioma symptoms. Look for shortness of breath or dry cough, respiratory infections, blood in cough and general feeling of illness. Because these symptoms are so fairly common, it is important to analyze your potential exposure to Asbestos in the past. This is also important in filing an Asbestosis claim and getting Asbestosis Compensation. Mesothelioma, remember, is the malignant cancerous result of Asbestos Exposure. Asbestosis is the non-cancerous form of the disease.
