Asbestos fibers are known to cause several serious health conditions including lung cancer, asbestosis, asbestos cancer and ovarian cancer. It is also connected to the very serious cancer known as mesothelioma. Mesothelioma can affect several parts of your body including your heart, lungs and stomach depending on where the aggressive cancer has struck.
If you have worked with asbestos in the past or have been exposed to asbestos in the past, then there is a chance that you could develop mesothelioma. It is important that you see a doctor if you are experiencing any symptoms of mesothelioma and that you seek legal counsel about your options for financial compensation.

Types of Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma can strike you in a number of parts of your body, leading to painful and crippling symptoms. Some of the types of mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure include:
Pleural mesothelioma – this occurs in the pleura, or the protection of the lungs. If you are facing pleural mesothelioma then you could be experiencing chest pain, tiredness, shortness of breath and coughing up blood and phlegm. Medical attention is required.
Pericardial mesothelioma – this occurs in the pericardium or the protection for your heart. While rare, this form of mesothelioma can result in irregular heartbeats, shortness of breath, chest pain and other serious heart conditions
Peritoneal mesothelioma – this occurs in the peritoneum which holds the organs of the lower abdomen including the stomach, liver and intestines. This type of mesothelioma results in painful digestive symptoms such as abdominal pain, swelling, severe weight loss and anemia.
Living with Mesothelioma
Unfortunately many times symptoms of mesothelioma will not occur until it is too late. You could experience mesothelioma symptoms 30 to 50 years after exposure. Many people living with mesothelioma will die from it. Although there are several treatment options available, often the cancer has already made too big of an impact on the body.
There are several resources for sufferers of mesothelioma including help lines and cancer centers where you will gain the support and comfort needed to live with this deadly disease and prepare for what is to come.
