Suffering from Mesothelioma Due to Asbestos Exposure?

Our Woodland Hills Workers' Compensation Attorney Can Help

Mesothelioma is a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. While the use of asbestos has decreased in the United States due to its lethal health effects, many people who were exposed even 20-50 years ago now face life-threatening cancer caused by this insulation and fire-resistant material.

Mesothelioma commonly develops after exposure to asbestos in workplaces such as industrial settings, old houses, auto repair shops, public buildings, schools, and shipyards. The cancerous fibers lodge in the mesothelial tissue and create tumors that can be deadly if left untreated. At Malter Law Corporation, our Woodland Hills workers' compensation lawyer understands the life-altering impact that mesothelioma can have on an individual, and we are here to help.

Mesothelioma and Common Symptoms

Symptoms of this disease include shortness of breath, pain near the tumor, fatigue, fluid buildup, bowel obstruction, and weight loss. Mesothelioma is often diagnosed using image scans, biopsies, staging, and blood tests. Once detected, a variety of treatment options are available, including chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation.

The three main types of mesothelioma are:

  • Pleural: this cancer attacks the lining of the lungs and is the most common type of mesothelioma, representing about 75% of cases.
  • Peritoneal: this type focuses on the lining of the abdominal cavity. The treatment with the most success is a combination of heated chemotherapy and surgery.
  • Pericardial: this cancer develops on the lining of the heart and is very dangerous. It is difficult to treat because of the location of the tumors, and it represents about 1 percent of cases.
