Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2007
The law firm of Hissey Kientz has announced the launch of its new website, Mesothelioma Hotline. The website is a resource for information about asbestos and mesothelioma, and will provide mesothelioma patients and their families with the latest legal and treatment developments about the disease.
Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer caused by exposure to airborne asbestos which can attack the lining of the stomach, lungs or heart. The use of asbestos in building materials and other products has been restricted in the United States since the 1970s. But because it can take as long as 50 years after asbestos exposure for a person to develop mesothelioma symptoms, the number of mesothelioma deaths is expected to continue to rise for the next decade.
For people who may have been exposed to asbestos, Mesothelioma Hotline will provide valuable information about the symptoms of the disease, how doctors make a mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment options that are available to patients. The website also explains how a mesothelioma lawyer can assist patients through the process of gathering the information necessary to file a lawsuit.
To keep patients informed of the latest advances in mesothelioma research and treatments, Mesothelioma Hotline is updated constantly with legal and medical news, information about clinical trials and recent scientific breakthroughs by mesothelioma researchers.
