Do you know the most common form of mesothelioma?

You may have already known that asbestos is toxic and tried to avoid it, or maybe you had never even heard of the substance before receiving a life-altering diagnosis. The fatal cancer mesothelioma is unfortunately not an uncommon outcome of asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma can present in several different forms, but pleural mesothelioma is the most common in South Carolina.

Despite being the most common type of mesothelioma, pleural mesothelioma often goes undiagnosed for significant periods of time. This is due to a number of factors, including the sometimes lengthy delay between exposure and the onset of the disease. Once victims start to develop symptoms they are often misdiagnosed because of how similar pleural mesothelioma symptoms are to that of other diseases.

There are not many treatment options available to victims of pleural mesothelioma. Despite being the most common type of this cancer, treatment is often fickle. When diagnosed early enough, treatments like chemotherapy, radiation and even surgery can be helpful in extending patients' lifespans. For those who received their diagnoses too late, palliative care is usually the only option.

There is no way to undo the harm caused by careless manufacturers, employers and industrial companies. This does not mean that you do not deserve justice for your mesothelioma diagnosis. In South Carolina, it is possible to seek compensation through a civil lawsuit, which can lead to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, economic damages and much more. If you need more information about pleural mesothelioma or other diseases related to asbestos, our website has a wide range of resources.
