Types Of Mesothelioma
Have you developed mesothelioma during the course of your employment? If yes, you may be entitled to make mesothelioma claims.
Mesothelioma has no cure which means if you have been diagnosed with this disease, you will have to live with it. But unfortunately, mesothelioma sufferers have only a short time to live following diagnosis. Mesothelioma is a terminal disease, but the symptoms can be treated with chemotherapy, surgery or radiotherapy.
The two main types of this disease include peritoneal mesothelioma and pleural mesothelioma.
Pleural mesothelioma occurs when an individual inhales asbestos fibers into the lungs. When this happens, a tumor forms on the pleura or the lining of the lungs. This makes breathing painful and difficult.
On the other hand, peritoneal mesothelioma occurs when a person has been exposed to asbestos. In this condition, a tumor develops on the peritoneum or the lining of the abdomen. This prevents the peritoneum from functioning properly. This form of mesothelioma is less common.
There are numerous occupations where workers are at a risk of developing mesothelioma. This includes building sites, shipbuilding, railway workshops, some factories, power stations, etc. Workers can develop mesothelioma after being exposed to even low levels of asbestos.
