Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs, heart or abdomen. Initially mesothelioma does not cause pain directly, instead it indirectly causes pain through the build up of fluid in the lining of the lungs or abdomen.
This fluid (or effusion) is the bodies reaction to the damage to the mesothelial lining caused by asbestos fibers trapped in the tissues. The excess fluid puts pressure on and irritates the pain receptive nerves in the area. In later stages, when mesothelioma becomes metastatic, pain is caused by tumor growth that irritates or damages nerves. Pain from mesothelioma is often relieved by withdrawing the excess fluid from the lungs/abdomen or with pain medication.
Our firm is experienced and dedicated to precisely that kind of investigation, and we are almost always able to determine the Asbestos exposure even in cases where the source is unknown to the family.
