Asbestosis / Mesothelioma

Asbestosis is a scarring of the lungs that leads to severe problems with breathing. This is caused by exposure to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer of the lining of the chest as well as the lining of the abdomen. This rare form of cancer is from exposure to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is most commonly found in the pleura, which is the outer lining of the lungs and the chest cavity. Mesothelioma can also be found in the peritoneum, which is the lining of the abdominal cavity, as well as in the pericardium, which is the sac that surrounds the heart.

Exposure to Asbestos will not immediately result in a diagnosis of Mesothelioma and Asbestosis. The symptoms usually do not appear until at least ten (10) years after first exposure.

Many people who have Mesothelioma or Asbestosis are misdiagnosed because of the extended manifestation period of the disease.

Many other people, who have been properly diagnosed with Mesothelioma or Asbestosis, do not think that they have any legal recourse. Not true. You do have legal recourse, and you can be compensated for your ailment.

What is Peritoneal Mesothelioma?

Peritoneal mesothelioma is a relatively rare form of malignant mesothelioma, making up slightly less than 30% of diagnosed mesothelioma cases. This type of mesothelioma affects the cells of the abdominal lining, also known as the peritoneum, which supports and protects organs in the abdomen.

The peritoneum is made up of two layers, called the visceral and parietal layers. The parietal layer is an outer layer that covers the abdominal cavity, while the visceral layer covers internal organs and the intestinal tract.

Asbestos and Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Exposure to asbestos may cause peritoneal mesothelioma in one of two ways. One theory suggests that asbestos fibers are ingested and eventually work their way into the peritoneum, while another suggests that asbestos fibers that are inhaled are transported to the peritoneum via the lymphatic system.

Once in the peritoneum, asbestos fibers cause changes in peritoneal cells that cause them to divide without restraint, causing the peritoneal layers to thicken. The growth of cancer cells puts pressure on internal organs, and this pressure is increased by fluid that builds up in the area as a result of cancer growth.

symptoms of Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a very late onset form of cancer. After initial asbestos exposure has occurred, it is common for two or three decades to elapse before symptoms begin to appear. Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may include the following:

  • Weight loss
  • Fever or night sweats
  • Pain or swelling in the abdominal area
  • Obstruction of the small or large intestine
  • Anemia

Peritoneal Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Diagnosis of peritoneal mesothelioma is based on these and other symptoms, as well as the results of diagnostic procedures such as x-rays, CT scans and MRI scans. These are used not only to diagnose the disease itself, but also to discover how far it has advanced. This information will help to determine the best course of mesothelioma treatment. Often a biopsy is also required to confirm a diagnosis of peritoneal mesothelioma. This may take the form of a needle biopsy or tissue biopsy, although in some cases both may be required. A needle biopsy involves using a long needle to remove fluid from the abdominal cavity, while a tissue biopsy requires minor surgery to remove tissue from the area. The fluid or tissue is then tested to determine whether malignant mesothelial cells are present.

Treatment for Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma are non-specific in that they are often associated with other less serious conditions. Diagnosis is therefore often made too late for curative treatment to be an effective option.

For most patients with peritoneal mesothelioma, treatment is palliative, and is designed reduce the rate at which the cancer spreads, and to provide relief from the symptoms of the disease. Treatment typically involves a combination of surgery and chemotherapy, as either treatment alone is much less effective as when they are used in conjunction with each other.

Surgery is not always a practical option for individuals with peritoneal mesothelioma. Surgical procedures involve the removal of diseased sections of the peritoneum, and are often followed up with intravenous or intraperitoneal chemotherapy (where drugs delivered through a vein or directly to the peritoneal cavity) to remove residual cancer cells that were not able to be removed during surgery.

In cases where surgery and chemotherapy are not suitable treatment options, palliative treatment is used to provide symptomatic relief; however, such treatments cannot slow the progression of the cancer. These types of treatments are used simply to manage pain and provide relief from symptoms such as the build up of fluid in the peritoneal cavity.

Pericardial Mesothelioma

Pericardial mesothelioma is the least common form of a mesothelioma. Only around 5% of mesothelioma cases are pericardial. This type of mesothelioma affects the pericardium, which is a membranous lining that surrounds the heart, providing both support and protection to the organ.

Asbestos and Pericardial Mesothelioma

It is well known that asbestos fibers inhaled into the lung are the cause of pleural mesothelioma, which affects the lining of the lungs. However, the means by which asbestos causes pericardial mesothelioma is not well understood, although it is believed that asbestos fibers may travel from the lungs to the heart via the bloodstream.

Once asbestos fibers are lodged in the membranes surrounding the heart, they cannot be eliminated by the body. These fibers then begin to cause changes in the pericardial membrane. While the exact nature of these changes is not completely understood, it is known that these changes eventually lead to uncontrolled growth of cells in the pericardial layers, causing malignant mesothelioma tumors to form. As malignant cells grow in the pericardium, the membranes thicken and become filled with fluid, putting pressure on the heart and causing a variety of symptoms.

symptoms of Pericardial Mesothelioma

The rarity of pericardial mesothelioma has made it difficult for specialists to determine a specific set of common symptoms. The following symptoms often indicate a cardiac condition, but further tests are required to confirm a diagnosis of pericardial mesothelioma.

  • Chest pain
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Heart palpitations
  • Shortness of breath

Pericardial Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Diagnosis of pericardial mesothelioma is problematic, as the nature of these symptoms is relatively non-specific, in that they can appear as a result of several other cardiac conditions. Diagnosis will involve reviewing an individual’s medical history as well as assessing their current medical condition.

Chest x-rays, a CT scan or an MRI scan may all be used to diagnose pericardial mesothelioma. However, to confirm the diagnosis and to determine whether the point of original of the cancer is the pericardium or another area, a biopsy must be performed. This involves removal of fluid or tissue from the pericardial area, and testing of this tissue or fluid for the presence of malignant mesothelioma cells.

treatment of Pericardial Mesothelioma

Unfortunately for most people who are diagnosed with pericardial mesothelioma, by the time symptoms of the disease appear, the cancer has progressed to a stage where conventional treatments are largely ineffective for anything other than providing temporary relief of symptoms. The difficulty of diagnosing pericardial mesothelioma at an early stage means that the long-term prognosis for most people with the disease is very poor. The average patient survives just six months post-diagnosis.

In rare cases, the disease may be diagnosed early enough that surgical procedures may provide some benefit. If pericardial tumors are small and have not spread to the lungs, chest wall or lymph nodes, radical surgery may successfully remove most cancerous tissue; however, such surgery is very risky due to the proximity of the heart.

For most people with pericardial mesothelioma, palliative treatment is the only option. This may include a procedure called fine needle aspiration, which removes excess fluid from the pericardium to relive pressure on the heart. Radiation therapy may be used to kill cancer cells and reduce the size of tumors, but this procedure is dangerous, as the heart and lungs themselves may be damaged. Currently there are no chemotherapeutic options for this type of mesothelioma.

Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma is the medical term for the lethal mesothelioma lung cancer caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers. There is no benign form of this disease; all occurrences of mesothelioma are malignant. Mesothelioma can attack several areas of the body, but two thirds of all mesothelioma diagnoses are pleural. Of the three thousand new cases of mesothelioma cancer diagnosed in the United States every year, two thousand of them are pleural mesothelioma, or mesothelioma lung cancer.

How Asbestos Causes Pleural Mesothelioma

The mesothelium is a membrane that lines several of the bodys internal cavities. Among them are the abdominal cavity (the peritoneum) and the pleural cavity, which is where the lungs are located. The pleura is a term for the dual layered mesothelium membrane that surrounds the lungs; the outer layer (the parietal layer) attaches to the chest wall, while the inner layer (the visceral layer) wraps around the lungs. The narrow space between the two is called the pleural area.

Asbestos finds its way to the pleural membrane through asbestos fibers which are inhaled by someone exposed to dust caused by the disturbance of asbestos. The fibers work their way through the lung to the pleural membrane and usually remain there as the body is unable to reject them.

These fibers will cause changes to the mesothelial cells that form the pleural membrane over a long period of time.� Eventually the cells will begin uncontrolled growth - thickening the pleural walls, causing a buildup of fluid, and eventually leading to the development of mesothelioma cancer in the form of tumors. Often this process can take twenty years or more, which is why mesothelioma is usually diagnosed long after the exposure to asbestos has occurred.

Symptoms of Pleural Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma symptoms can be misleading, as they resemble symptoms associated with more common afflictions such as asthma, allergies, cardiovascular problems, pneumonia and even tuberculosis. Symptoms include:

  • A persistent cough that is harsh and dry
  • Shortness of breath
  • Painful inhalation
  • Chest pain
  • Weight loss
  • Fever or night sweats
  • Persistent fatique

The cause of many of these symptoms is the accumulation of fluid in the pleural area. That puts pressure on the lungs and chest wall while impacting breathing as well.

Pleural Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Diagnosis procedures for chest-related symptoms often begin with a chest X-ray. These images may show the thickening of the pleural wall. A CT or MRI scan may confirm the presence of fluid in the pleural area, which can be taken as a primary indicator of mesothelioma.

A chest drain or pleural tap? may be employed to extract fluid from the pleural area, which can then be tested for cancerous cells. A biopsy will also allow testing for cancerous cells. The biopsy sample is extracted through a small incision in the chest wall that allows the doctor to place a surgical tool between two ribs and extract a tissue sample.

Treatment for Pleural Mesothelioma

Unfortunately, pleural mesothelioma is usually diagnosed only after it has been active in the body for a long period. Symptoms do not begin to develop until after the cancerous stage is well underway. Treatment often involves surgery for the removal of any tumors that have developed, followed by a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

There has been a good deal of research on mesothelioma treatment, with the specific goal of extending the life expectancy for victims of the disease. While the disease can be slowed, it cannot be stopped. However several years ago the average life expectancy following a mesothelioma diagnosis was a year to eighteen months.

Today, the use of new medications in combination with chemotherapy and radiation can extend that average life expectancy into a period of years. There is an extended discussion of these options and developments in the treatment section of this website.

Legal Considerations

The liability of asbestos manufacturers and users has been well established legally throughout the world. In this country, it is a routine practice for mesothelioma patients to engage a mesothelioma attorney who specializes in getting compensation for victims of this disease. Billions of dollars have been set aside by asbestos corporations for this purpose.

Types of Mesothelioma

There are three principal variations of mesothelioma, based on where in the human body it develops. There are also three categories of malignant cells associated with the disease: cell type dictates the type of chemotherapy that is appropriate for treatment. In this section we’ll review the basic medical facts that define a case of mesothelioma.

The only known cause for mesothelioma is the asbestos fiber. Asbestos is made up of these tough, flexible and tiny fibers that are invisible to the human eye. They impact humans when they make their way inside the body, which occurs when you either inhale them or ingest them inadvertently.

They are small enough that you wouldn’t know about the intake; they could be present in a cloud of dust caused by a deteriorating asbestos product. That cloud of dust could send fibers into your lungs, or allow them to float down on a sandwich at the work site.

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that develops in the mesothelium, which is a membrane that lines many areas within the body. It wraps around the outer surfaces of both lungs as well as the outer surface of the heart. In addition, it lines the walls of both the chest cavity and the abdominal cavity.

Asbestos fibers become embedded in the mesothelium, almost always in one of three areas: the portion that forms the outer lining of the lungs, the membrane wrapped around the heart, or the lining of the abdominal cavity. These three areas of the anatomy define the three types of cancerous mesothelioma. There is also a benign form of the disease, a rare occurrence that may be found in any of the three areas.

pleural mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma is cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs. Two thirds or more of all mesothelioma cases are pleural; the terms “mesothelioma lung cancer” and “asbestos lung cancer” are non-medical terms for this version of the disease. Often pleural mesothelioma is misdiagnosed because initial symptoms are usually a persistent cough, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest – symptoms that are found in much more common diseases such as pneumonia, emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Twenty to thirty percent of all mesothelioma cases develop in the peritoneum, the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity. This version is called peritoneal mesothelioma; it seems to have a latency period of twenty to thirty years, shorter than the thirty to forty years attributed to pleural mesothelioma. No one is quite sure how asbestos fibers make their way to the abdominal cavity; the prevalent theory is that they are ingested and work their way through the wall of the digestive tract.

Pericardial Mesothelioma

The pericardium is the membrane formed into a sac that surrounds the heart. Pericardial mesothelioma is a rare version of the disease, developing in perhaps five percent of all cases. The theory on development of this disease is that asbestos fibers are broken into pieces in the lungs, small enough that they can be carried through the bloodstream to the heart. There they lodge in the lining of the heart and develop mesothelioma in much the same fashion as asbestos fibers cause the more common pleural mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma Cells

The cancer cells that develop as the result of asbestos fibers in the mesothelium are of two varieties, but manifest themselves in three different ways. Epithelioid cancer cells are the most common variety for mesothelioma cases of all types. The second and less common malignancy in mesothelioma is the sarcomatoid cell. This cell type is usually associated with peritoneal mesothelioma. The third category of cell configuration for mesothelioma is biphasic, a rare form of the disease that consists of both epithelioid and sarcomatoid cells.

Different cell types respond to different chemotherapy approaches. One cell might be best dealt with by attempting to block nourishment to the malignant area. Another might be more responsive to a type of enzyme associated with the immune system that will attack the malignant cell. Doctors are constantly experimenting with combinations of drugs to develop the most potent methods of stopping cancerous growth, and eliminating the existing cells.

Mesothelioma Signs & Symptoms

Mesothelioma is a serious type of cancer that attacks the membrane surrounding various organs. symptoms of mesothelioma may take anywhere between 20 to 40 years or more to manifest themselves. And because early mesothelioma symptoms tend to be general, they often go ignored or else confused for symptoms of less serious ailments. Generally, however, individuals begin to manifest mesothelioma symptoms two to three months prior to being diagnosed .

There are three types of mesothelioma – pleural, peritoneal, and pericardial – and symptoms tend to vary according to type.

Pleural Mesothelioma Symptoms

Pleural mesothelioma affects the lining of the chest. Symptoms of pleural mesothelioma may include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Coughing
  • Sweating
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Swelling in the upper body, especially the face and arms
  • Lower back pain
  • Pain in the side of the chest
  • Muscle weakness

Peritoneal Mesothelioma Symptoms

Mesothelioma that affects the lining of the abdominal cavity is called peritoneal mesothelioma. Symptoms of this type of mesothelioma include:

  • Stomach pain
  • Weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Swollen belly
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Anemia
  • Fever
  • Blood clotting abnormalities

Pericardial Mesothelioma Symptoms

The pericardium is the lining that surrounds the heart. Mesothelioma affecting this area of the body is known as pericardial mesothelioma and symptoms include:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent coughing
Share:

Mesothelioma Patient

A mesothelioma patient is someone who has developed this rare, but deadly, form of cancer that develops almost exclusively as a result of exposure to asbestos. A mesothelioma patient develops this disease by inhaling or ingesting harmful amounts of airborne asbestos fibers. This happens most often in the work environment, but can occur in any environment where asbestos is present. A mesothelioma patient has the legal right to seek compensation for their damages, including pain and suffering, loss of income, and all related medical expenses.

A mesothelioma patient can develop this cancer in the lining of any internal organ, though mesothelioma most often attacks the pleural tissues of the lungs or the peritoneal tissues of the abdominal cavity's organs. When a mesothelioma patient's pleural lung tissue is affected, they may experience shortness of breath, chest pain, and a chronic cough, though a mesothelioma patient may not experience any symptoms for several years.

A mesothelioma patient whose peritoneal tissues of the abdominal cavity are compromised may experience effusions, where the tissues swell and collect fluid. symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may not develop for many years, though a mesothelioma patient may suffer from a painful or swollen belly, bowel problems, nausea, weight loss, anemia, and/or swelling of the feet.

A mesothelioma patient can be afflicted with this cancer for several years before it is ever diagnosed because mesothelioma can remain dormant for decades. Once diagnosed, the prognosis for a mesothelioma patient is bleak. The average mesothelioma patient lives four to eighteen months after being diagnosed. If a mesothelioma patient is diagnosed earlier their survival time can increase, with a fifty percent chance of living two years, and a twenty percent chance of surviving five years.

A mesothelioma patient is an individual who has been exposed to toxic asbestos fibers in the last fifty years. Workers in the factory, construction, custodial, automotive, railroad, and shipyard industries are all at risk for developing mesothelioma. The family members of workers who unknowingly bring asbestos fibers home on their person may also be at risk for developing mesothelioma. The harmful effects of asbestos exposure have been well understood for a long time, though organizations still choose to manufacture products using this dangerous material. This material is also present in many existing structures, and can pose a hazard during renovation and demolition.

If you are a mesothelioma patient that has been exposed to harmful levels of asbestos as a result of another party's negligence, you may wish to speak to an experienced and qualified attorney who can help protect and maximize you interests in a legal case. If a mesothelioma patient dies, a wrongful death suit may also be an option for loved ones. For more information on the legal rights and options of a mesothelioma patient, please Contact a Mesothelioma Attorney who is familiar with other mesothelioma cases.

Auto Insurance in United Kingdom


It is compulsory in the United Kingdom to have auto insurance if you want to drive a car. If you are liable for the consequences of an accident the UK auto insurance will pay for damage or loss and compensation due to other person. Though auto insurance costs rises, it still rather competetive market and you can save money on your auto insurance premium in different ways.The minimum legal amount of auto insurance required for driving a car in the UK is Third Party Only (TPO).Though many auto insurance companies no longer offer this type of cover. There are many factors that can decrease or increase your auto insurance premiums and some UK auto insurance providers are cheaper in different ways.

For example, some auto insurance providers insure only women drivers because accordingly to statistics they are less to make claims, some will insure only if you have over 40% No Claims Discount, some specialise in convicted drivers and young drivers. Minimizing a risk to the UK auto insurance provider is another factor to consider when you apply for car insurance.

Auto insurance providers take into consideration all risks, such as the type of car, the type of driver, the amount of vehicles stolen from an area,their driving history in order to calculate the "risk". Often mileage is considered by auto insurance providers when they calculate the costs of your insurance premium.

If you keep your car off the road at night you'll reduce the risk of making a claim for violence or vandalism, theft and so on. Of course, there are many other factors which you can't change so easy and they affect your auto insurance premiums. Among them there are age, sex, postcode, and even your profession. All of them can influence the cost of your auto insurance. Most of the companies are much like bookmakers. The car insurance company basically takes a gamble based on carefully analysed statistics.
