Industrial Diseases

Mesothelioma

This is a type of cancer that is normally caused by exposure to asbestos many many years ago and as long as 60 years before symptoms appear. It can also be caused by only a small amount of exposure to asbestos.

The symptoms can be very minor to start with but eventually can include breathlessness, chest pains, coughing and a change in voice.

It is a form of cancer that affects the Mesothelium which is a thin membrane that is found in the abdomen (peritonal Mesothelioma) or in the inner chest wall and the more common disease known as Pleural Mesothelioma.

It is sometimes difficult to diagnose this condition but once you have been given a diagnosis by your G.P. then you should be referred to see a Specialist Consultant urgently.

It is usual for a CT Scan and/or MRI Scan and/or Ultrasound Scan or PET Scan carried out to confirm the disease. In addition a Biopsy may be required.

Once the tests have been carried out and a disgnosis made to confrim the size and whereabouts of the cancer and a treatment plan can be given depending on the stage.

Stage 1 - limited to the pleura on one side of the chest

Stage 2 - as above but the cancer cells will have extended into the pleura in the lung tissue or muscle of the diaphragm

Stage 3 - the cancer will have spread to the glands in the chest and deeper into the tissues around the pleura

Stage 4 - the cancer will have spread to other organs or to tissue close to the pleura

If you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma you are more likely than not entitled to recover compensation from the insurers of the employers for whom you worked when you were exposed to the asbestos. Even if these employers no longer exist you may still be able to claim.

We can also help families of those who regrettably may have died from the disease and can offer help with the Inquest and claim for compensation.
