Symptoms & Treatments

Montana Mesothelioma Lawyers

Diagnosis of mesothelioma is rather difficult not only because the symptoms often resemble other, less severe conditions, but also because symptoms can take 30 to 50 years to appear. This is caused by an abnormally long latency period of 20 to 50 years for mesothelioma.

In order to diagnose mesothelioma, your physician will likely wish to perform one of the following procedures in conjunction with tissue biopsy:

    Removing Materials Containing Asbestos

  • MRI
  • CT scan
  • PET scan
  • X-ray

If you have been exposed to asbestos in your Montana occupation, or in other contexts, it is imperative that you pay attention to any symptoms of mesothelioma that may arise. These symptoms might include:

  • Chest wall pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chronic cough
  • Heart palpitations
  • Anemia/fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Hoarseness/wheezing

Treatment of mesothelioma is unfortunately not very effective. After diagnosis, your prognosis may range from two months to three years. The only proven effective treatment is chemotherapy. It might be combined with radiation therapy or surgery to excise the tissue. Although it has not yet been shown to be effective, immunotherapy has begun being used in an attempt to promote natural immune function against the mesothelioma tissue.
