What Is Mesothelioma?

3 min read

If you or a family member suffers from mesothelioma, then you know that it is a highly aggressive form of cancer. What you may not know is that mesothelioma is directly linked to asbestos exposure. In the overwhelming number of mesothelioma cases, the asbestos exposure occurred in the workplace.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral. It was once widely used in a number of industries in East Texas and across the country due to its fiber strength and fire-resistant properties.

When a person swallows or inhales asbestos, the fibers can become lodged in the mesothelium, or the tissue that lines the lungs, heart, abdomen and other organs and cavities. Over time, the asbestos fibers may cause tumors to form in the tissue. In fact, it may take anywhere between 15 to 60 years after a person’s asbestos exposure before symptoms start to appear.

The delay between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma symptoms can make it difficult to identify the source of one’s exposure. However, The Sloan Firm knows what it takes investigate mesothelioma cases.

Our team at The Sloan Firm can investigate how the asbestos exposure occurred in your case and take immediate action to seek a recovery for you.
