Stage One Mesothelioma Treatment

Houston, Texas and across the nation

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that began to manifest itself on a massive scale in the 1970s. This occurred because mesothelioma takes between 20 and 50 years to show serious symptoms and the largest amount of American workers were exposed to the cause of mesothelioma in the early 1900s while working on industrial jobsites. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to and inhalation of asbestos fibers which get released when asbestos is agitated.
Because asbestos is so heat-resistant, malleable, and durable, it has been used across all forms of industry for over a century. It wasn't until the 1930s that the government began to issue warnings that asbestos could have harmful side effects on one's health. While these warnings existed, many employers ignored them and didn't protect their employees from being exposed. If you or a family member was negligently exposed to asbestos and contracted mesothelioma, you can seek legal help from our law firm.

Treatment for Stage One Mesothelioma

The symptoms of mesothelioma mimic many other conditions including the common cold, the flu, and pneumonia. Because of this, mesothelioma often goes undiagnosed for years; even decades. Once mesothelioma is finally tested for and detected, it has often already proceeded from stage one to one of the later stages of cancer. However, if it is caught early and is in stage one, the patient may enjoy easier treatments, improved quality of life, and a longer life expectancy.
Stage one mesothelioma is characterized by having zero to very few tumors that haven't spread to other areas of the body yet. Treatment can involve the following:
