More Woman Are Being Diagnosed with Mesothelioma, an Extremely Deadly Form of Cancer Caused By Exposure to Asbestos
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Traditionally, Mesothelioma was commonly diagnosed in workers who were exposed to asbestos fibers at work or the families of these workers who suffered secondary exposure. However, because of manufacturers who decided to use asbestos products, many other people have been exposed to asbestos fibers. More specifically, women are now being diagnosed with mesothelioma at an increasing rate because of the use of asbestos tainted talc in a variety of hygiene products
Mesothelioma (cancer of the mesothelium) is a form of cancer in which cells of the mesothelium become abnormal and divide without control or order. These cells typically invade and damage nearby tissues and organs. Cancer cells can also metastasize (spread) from their original site to other parts of the body. Most cases of mesothelioma begin in the pleura or peritoneum. The pleura is the outer lining of the lungs and chest cavity. Mesothelioma may also occur in the peritoneum (the lining of the abdominal cavity), the pericardium (a sac that surrounds the heart), or the layer surrounding reproductive organs.
Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Symptoms of mesothelioma include shortness of breath, chronic cough, coughing up blood, night sweats, and pain in the chest due to an accumulation of fluid in the pleural space are often symptoms of pleural mesothelioma. Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma include weight loss and cachexia, abdominal swelling and pain due to ascites (a buildup of fluid in the abdominal cavity). Other symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may include bowel obstruction, blood clotting abnormalities, anemia, and fever. If the cancer has spread beyond the mesothelium to other parts of the body, symptoms may include pain, trouble swallowing, or swelling of the neck or face.
Anyone Diagnosed with Mesothelioma Should Determine Their Exposure History
Anyone who is diagnosed with mesotherlioma should determine where and how they were exposed to asbestos. If they are living somewhere with asbestos, they should move and determine if abatement is feasible. Further, if they are using potentially tainted or dangerous products, they should stop. Further, their family should help locate the exposure to asbestos and determine how to prevent others from suffering exposure. A mesothelioma lawyer can often help a family locate the asbestos exposure and help determine if a lawsuit may be necessary to prevent additional exposure or obtain compensation for the family.
Recent Verdicts Against Johnson & Johnson Have Awarded Millions of Dollars To Women With Ovarian Cancer and Mesothelioma
Three recent multi-million dollar verdicts against Johnson & Johnson have found that this manufacturer of Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower talcum powder products has failed to adequately warn women regarding the potential danger of ovarian cancer and mesothelioma for women using these products. These verdicts have led to over eleven thousand lawsuits being filed against Johnson & Johnson by women with ovarian cancer and families of women who have died from ovarian cancer.
Asbesto Exposure Has Also Been Linked to Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer is a hard to detect form of cancer that forms in a woman's ovary. It commonly results in abnormal cells that have the ability to metastasize to other parts of a woman's body. When ovarian cancer begins, there may be no or only vague symptoms. Symptoms do become more noticeable as the cancer progresses. These symptoms may include bloating, pelvic pain, abdominal swelling, and loss of appetite, among others. Common areas to which the cancer may spread include the lining of the abdomen, lining of the bowel and bladder, lymph nodes, lungs, and liver.
Use of asbestos products has also been linked to ovarian cancer and is known to increase the risk of ovarian cancer. Unforuntately, several manufacturers have used asbestos talc in feminine products that women use. The use of these baby powders and shower powders can often increase a woman's risk of ovarian cancer.
