Asbestos Mesothelioma

Asbestos & Mesothelioma in Austin, TX

What is asbestos?

In chemical terms, asbestos is a group of naturally occurring silicate minerals. When compounded, asbestos can have several properties, including resistance to heat, electrical conductivity, and tensile strength. As a result, asbestos was considered to be an ideal material to use widely throughout the construction, automotive, and shipbuilding industries.

Link Established Between Asbestos & Mesothelioma

In recent years, health risks and illness have been linked to asbestos exposure. Now known and accepted as a carcinogen - a cancer-causing agent -many studies have been conducted that link asbestos exposure with mesothelioma, which is a cancerous attack on the lining of the lungs, stomach, and in some cases, even the heart. Because mesothelioma often takes decades to develop, it can be extremely difficult to prove when or if the asbestos exposure directly caused a specific person's disease.

Depending on where the cancer occurs or how severe the cancer is, there are common symptoms that may indicate asbestos-induced mesothelioma:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Painful coughing or breathing
  • Unusual lumps or protrusions under the skin on your chest
  • Unexplained swelling in chest, abdomen, or testicles
  • Unusual, unexplained, or sudden weight loss
