What has us most concerned is there is nearly no public awareness about what mesothelioma is, and the fact this rare form of cancer typically does not show up for decades after the initial exposure
(PRWEB) November 20, 2014
The California Mesothelioma Victims Center is calling attention to a recent news article related to asbestos in a Southern California school, and another reminder that asbestos is still an issue in the Golden State. The Center says, "We applaud school officials in Southern California about being so proactive for school children, and possible exposure to asbestos, because asbestos exposure can cause mesothelioma. We also want to remind individuals who had heavy exposure to asbestos decades ago to tell their primary care physician, and to get a chest x-ray as part of their annual medical check up.
"What has us most concerned is there is nearly no public awareness about what mesothelioma is, and the fact this rare form of cancer typically does not show up for decades after the initial exposure. The people we are most concerned about in California are individuals who had extreme exposure to asbestos at a shipyard, a oil refinery, a manufacturing facility, or while serving in the US Navy, Marines, USAF, or US Army.
"If someone like this has been diagnosed with mesothelioma we are offering to make certain they have one of the nation's best mesothelioma law firms advancing what could be a mesothelioma compensation claim that could be worth hundreds of thousands, or over a million dollars."
