The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is now trying to help families dealing with a possible mesothelioma diagnosis understand the vital diagnostic steps that must be taken, if their loved one is now terminally ill and the individual was known to have a work history involving major exposure to asbestos. Without a actual diagnosis of mesothelioma that includes a pathology report, compensation for this rare form of cancer is all but impossible.
The reason the Compensation Center is so passionate about getting a confirmed mesothelioma diagnosis is because they believe hundreds, or perhaps north of a thousand US citizens die each year from mesothelioma without an actual diagnosis for this rare form of cancer, which means there will never be compensation for the victim or their family members. The group feels this is an incredible injustice to the possible victim and their family. For more information family members of individuals suspected of having mesothelioma, but are too weak to have a biopsy, are urged to contact the Mesothelioma Compensation Center anytime at 866-714-7466.
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "In just the last week we have had two calls from extremely concerned family members about what is involved in a mesothelioma diagnosis, because their terminally ill loved one had long term exposure to asbestos. In one instance the individual had served in the US Navy as a machinist during the Vietnam war, and spent the rest of his working life working for a major truck builder on the assembly line. In the other instance, the individual had spent 40 years as a demolition contractor. In both instances we were able to help the families with customized diagnostic approaches, after checking with our medical consultants."
"If a doctor mentions mesothelioma could be a possibility for a loved one, or the family knows a terminally ill individual had heavy exposure to asbestos at work, family members are urged to call us at 866-714-6466 so we can tell them everything we know about mesothelioma diagnostic tests, and how vital it is to discover mesothelioma before the individual passes away." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
