  • Men are nearly 5 times more likely than women to be diagnosed with mesothelioma.
  • There are a few different types of mesothelioma, but the most common (70-90%) is pleural mesothelioma.
  • The survival rate after diagnosis is 1 year for 40% of patients, 2 years for 20% of patients, and 3 years for 10% of patients.
  • In the last year for which we have statistics, more than 2,000 people died from mesothelioma (2013).

What Are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

Many individuals who were exposed to asbestos for a significant period of time will contract mesothelioma, asbestosis or other asbestos related conditions in their lifetimes. 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.

The most common symptoms and signs of mesothelioma are:

  • Weakness in the muscles
  • Anemia
  • Dry coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Abdominal pain or chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Respiratory problems
  • Fever

When it has become advanced, mesothelioma may be evidenced in later stages by the following symptoms and signs:

  • Serious chest pain
  • Sudden, unexplained weight loss
  • Severe respiratory complications

Determining how you were exposed to asbestos is an important part of a mesothelioma lawsuit. Contact the mesothelioma attorneys at Bailey Cowan Heckaman today so that we can investigate your case and determine who is responsible.
