Helping Mesothelioma Patients Improve Their Prognosis
What is Mesothelioma?
There was a time that asbestos was the so-called ‘Miracle Mineral’. Its resistance to heat made it ideal to be scattered throughout things like homes and vehicles to prevent the possible spread of fire. Unfortunately, it later became known that asbestos causes mesothelioma cancer, but this did not immediately stop its use by many manufacturing companies.
The latency period of mesothelioma is between 10 – 50 years. This not only makes many of those suffering senior citizens, but many do not suspect that asbestos could be the cause of their symptoms since their exposure could have been decades ago. By far the most common form of mesothelioma is pleural mesothelioma, which surrounds the lining of the lungs and accounts for about 75% of all cases, but there are also forms that present itself in the abdomen, heart, and testacles.
The Mesothelioma Prognosis Network
The Mesothelioma Prognosis Network is a 100% free resource and service center for those suffering from mesothelioma and their loved ones. Their goal is to provide the most information possible on mesothelioma and also make sure those who are diagnosed know all of their options to make the best decisions for their care and cancer journey.
Some of the things they can assist with include 1-1 assistance in finding the best mesothelioma treatment centers and doctors for your needs, mesothelioma packets delivered to your door that are tailored to you and consist of over 200 pages, and help in finding financial assistance for your treatments. Their aim is to provide hope through free resources and to help you in fighting this rare cancer together.
Another thing the Network can help with is finding an experienced and reputable lawyer who specializes in asbestos litigation. As mentioned before, many companies that were using asbestos did so knowing its deadly consequences, and were finally made to stop as recently as the 1980’s when they were eventually held accountable. Not everybody may wish to pursue litigation, but it is a logical option for many. The costs of treatment, caregiving, and loss of income can be formidable. Assistance in getting compensation due to the misdeeds of many companies is the least that can be done.
A mesothelioma lawyer may talk to you during an initial consultation and answer any questions you may have. Also, there is no obligation to hire any lawyer after the initial consultation.
