Because the average age for a diagnosed victim of this rare form of cancer is 72 years old, we fear many families fail to tell the primary care physician about any asbestos exposure
(PRWEB) June 02, 2014
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We want any available family member of an individual that was heavily exposed to asbestos in a workplace to be aware of the symptoms of mesothelioma. We fear that potentially thousands of US citizens go undiagnosed each year and die from mesothelioma as the symptoms are closely related to pneumonia. Without a proper diagnosis there is no possibility of compensation which is why we need family members to contact us at 866-714-6466 for more information on what to look out for, and how to go about beginning a mesothelioma compensation claim, if mesothelioma has been diagnosed."
According to the National Institute of Health Mesothelioma Symptoms include:
- Trouble breathing
- Pain under the rib cage
- Pain, swelling, or lumps in the abdomen
- Abnormal weight loss

The Center says, "Because the average age for a diagnosed victim of this rare form of cancer is 72 years old, we fear many families fail to tell the primary care physician about any asbestos exposure. It's easy to look over small details like that when dealing with a sick loved one, so we do our best to educate family members on what the tell-tale signs of mesothelioma look like. Without an actual diagnosis of mesothelioma, compensation is almost impossible." For more information about mesothelioma, and or the best possible mesothelioma compensation concerned family members are always welcome to call the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
