Why is Mesothelioma Deadly?

Asbestos Lawsuit Information

Many cancers are potentially fatal. However, some types of cancer may be caught early through routine screenings or symptoms that lead a doctor to test for the disease. An early diagnosis can lead to early treatment and early treatment has proven to be effective in the fight against cancer.

2 Reasons Mesothelioma is Deadly

Mesothelioma patients rarely get an early diagnosis. The symptoms of mesothelioma, which may include coughing and fatigue, often do not become significant until the disease has progressed. Thus, people who have been exposed to asbestos decades ago, and their doctors, often do not detect a problem until the mesothelioma cancer symptoms have progressed and life expectancy has been diminished.

Additionally, mesothelioma is an aggressive type of cancer. While patients are often asymptomatic in the early stages of mesothelioma, the disease is aggressively attacking the body and making treatment less likely to succeed.

What You Can Do About It

You can't change your past asbestos exposure or control whether you will get mesothelioma. However, you can make sure that your doctor knows you have been exposed to asbestos and when, and for how long, that exposure occurred. You can also promptly report any mesothelioma symptoms to your doctor and be aggressive in your own medical care.
