National Mesothelioma Claim Lawyer
Texas Asbestos Injury Attorney
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos dust particles. Mesothelioma cancer may not develop until years after exposure; in fact it is not uncommon for mesothelioma to be diagnosed more than 15 or 25 years after exposure to asbestos.
Exposure to asbestos can come directly from working with products made from asbestos or exposure to asbestos products (such as insulation in older homes and buildings, insulation surrounding pipes and insulation under floors). Some researchers believe that other household members can develop mesothelioma from dust brought into the home from an asbestos worker, such as a spouse who does the laundry.
If you, or a member of your household, have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should seek counsel to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the proper information and advice to make informed decisions about your possible claim.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Unfortunately, there are virtually no symptoms in the earliest stages. Symptoms often mask themselves as something less severe, such as a persistent cough or fatigue. However, the following are some of the more common types of symptoms we see in various forms of mesothelioma:
- Persistent cough
- Night sweats
- Coughing up blood
- Unexplained, rapid weight loss
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Fatigue or tiredness
- Unexplained lumps under the skin
- Change in bowel movement
- Irregular heartbeat
If you have ever been exposed to asbestos (especially significant amounts) and you display any of these symptoms, you should consult a physician. Of course, if you have been exposed to asbestos dust, you will want to get x-rays and CT Scans on a regular basis.
If you contract mesothelioma, or cancer from asbestos exposure, you should contact an experienced mesothelioma attorney to discuss your options and ensure your rights are fully protected.
