     Mesothelioma is difficult to diagnose because the symptoms resemble those of other diseases. Symptoms
    include chest pain, weight loss, shortness of breath, fever and swelling in the face or neck. Mesothelioma is
                                       more prevalent in men than in women.

   How is Mesothelioma Treated? by Alan Allport


Treatment for mesothelioma depends on the location of the cancer, the stage of the disease, and the
patient's age and general health. Standard treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, and
chemotherapy. Sometimes, these treatments are combined.

Surgery is a common treatment for mesothelioma. The doctor may remove part of the lining of the
chest or abdomen and some of the tissue around it. For cancer of the pleura (pleural mesothelioma), a
lung may be removed in an operation called a pneumonectomy. Sometimes part of the diaphragm, the
muscle below the lungs that helps with breathing, is also removed.

Radiation therapy, also called radiotherapy, involves the use of high-energy rays to kill cancer cells and
shrink tumors. Radiation therapy affects the cancer cells only in the treated area. The radiation may
come from a machine (external radiation) or from putting materials that produce radiation through thin
plastic tubes into the area where the cancer cells are found (internal radiation therapy).

Chemotherapy is the use of anti-cancer drugs to kill cancer cells throughout the body. Most drugs used
to treat mesothelioma are given by injection into a vein (intravenous, or IV). Doctors are also studying
the effectiveness of putting chemotherapy directly into the chest or abdomen (intracavitary
chemotherapy).

To relieve symptoms and control pain, the doctor may use a needle or a thin tube to drain fluid that has
built up in the chest or abdomen. The procedure for removing fluid from the chest is called
thoracentesis. Removal of fluid from the abdomen is called paracentesis. Drugs may be given through
a tube in the chest to prevent more fluid from accumulating. Radiation therapy and surgery may also
be helpful in relieving symptoms.

                      Mesothelioma Victim And Lawsuit For Compensation
                                        By Kirsten Hawkins



 Before we understand Mesothelioma Victim Lawsuit compensation, it is important to have a basic
understanding of mesothelioma and its possible causes. Mesothelioma is a cancer caused by
exposure to and inhaling asbestos particles.

Mesothelioma is serious cancer of the lining of the lungs and abdomen. This is a serious disease and
its seriousness is enhanced by the fact that it can remain dormant in the body for more than thirty
years. However, when it starts to manifest the medical treatment thereafter is of no avail. The
knowledge of being affected by Mesothelioma so late in life comes as a shock. It causes trauma and
upheaval in the life of the individual and the family members. It further adds a burden on the meager
financial resources of the individual for being treated for Mesothelioma at a time when he/she should
have been relaxing and enjoying life with their grandchildren. This is the major reason why many
mesothelioma victims are filing lawsuits to seek compensation.

Mesothelioma Victim Lawsuit compensation is a step against organizations that endangered the lives
of their employees by deliberately hiding the information related to the health hazards of asbestos
exposure.

The life span of a Mesothelioma victim is not more than twelve months after the diagnosis of disease.
This adds to their woes in seeking compensation in time. It further shocks the family members and
their near and dear one has very little time left. The family members can file Mesothelioma Victim
Lawsuit compensation even after person dies. However, they have to file the lawsuits for compensation
within a stipulated duration of the death of mesothelioma victim.

Most of the mesothelioma victims and their family members are not sure how to go about the
Mesothelioma Victim Lawsuit compensation. Fortunately, there are experts lawyers that specialize in
dealing with mesothelioma lawsuits for compensation.

Generally, the mesothelioma attorneys work on a contingent fee plan. This helps the victim to file the
lawsuits for mesothelioma compensation without worrying for the legal expenses. These lawyers
charge no upfront fee. They charge a percentage of the compensation as their fee and charge no fee if
the victim does not get any compensation. The mesothelioma lawyers also help the victim to compile
details and gather information related to asbestos exposure thereby get attractive sum as
compensation from the mesothelioma lawsuit.
