How do I know if I have asbestosis?

Numerous Pennsylvania workers have exposed themselves to asbestos-containing materials unknowingly. Most of these workers will never develop asbestosis or other asbestos-related diseases, but some of them will. In fact, doctors and medical experts claim that there is no safe level of exposure to asbestos and even a small amount can lead to serious health consequences.

Mesothelioma resulting from asbestos may warrant legal action

Working around asbestos may not have seemed like a worrisome factor of your job at the time you carried out your duties. However, sometime later, you may have developed serious health issues due to your exposure to asbestos. The fibers that make up this material can go into the lungs and remain there, causing irritation, scarring or even cancer.

New mesothelioma treatment offers hope

A new treatment is being used on pleural mesothelioma at the University of California, Los Angeles: cryoblation. Cryoblation, also known as cryosurgery, uses extreme cold to treat tumors. The microsurgery technique has been around for a long time, but this is the first it has been used to treat mesothelioma.

What you should know about malignant mesothelioma

There are approximately 3,000 new cases of malignant mesothelioma in the United States every year. Most of these cases are caused by job-related asbestos exposure, and most involve the pleural type of mesothelioma that manifests in the lung's lining. However, cases sometimes appear in the abdominal lining and in the heart.

Asbestos: a deadly and silent killer

Known for its durable properties, Asbestos was and is still used in many building and manufacturing products including siding, shingles, ceiling tiles, vinyl flooring, brake pads and fireproofing. When these products are handled or buildings containing them are renovated or demolished, individuals who are exposed may breathe in or have tiny asbestos fibers cling to their clothing.
