What Are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

Know What to Watch For

Many individuals who were exposed to asbestos for a significant period of time will contract mesothelioma or other asbestos related conditions in their lifetimes. Every year in the United States, between 2,000 and 3,000 individuals are diagnosed with mesothelioma cancer. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos fibers. If you or a loved one worked in an environment where asbestos was present even for a relatively short period of time, you should know the critical signs and symptoms of mesothelioma. The sooner you catch this condition, the better your chances will be. It is also important to note that family members of workers who were exposed to asbestos are at risk for mesothelioma. Be on the lookout and know what to watch for so you can protect you and your family.
