Mesothelioma is an uncommon type of cancer that affects the mesothelium, the tissue lining that surrounds and protects many of the body’s organs. The primary risk factor associated with the development of mesothelioma is asbestos exposure. The type of mesothelioma a patient is diagnosed with depends on the specific area of the mesothelium that is affected.
While there are many different forms of mesothelioma, there are three common types: pericardial mesothelioma, peritoneal mesothelioma & pleural mesothelioma.
Asbestos manufacturers knew that they were producing a deadly product and you may be entitled to significant compensation from the asbestos industry. Over 30 billion dollars has been set aside for victims of mesothelioma. Please contact us for a complimentary information booklet as well as a free legal consultation.
