Benign Pleural Effusion Claim


Benign pleural effusion claim

Q:  What is benign pleural effusion?

A:  Here are the facts:

Benign pleural effusion is not in itself a disease. It is not always possible to ascertain the exact cause of benign pleural effusion; however it can be a result of many conditions including kidney or heart failure, bacterial, fungal and viral infections, inflammations, pulmonary embolisms, metastatic tumours, Hodgkin disease and mesothelioma.

Our lungs and chest cavities are lined with a thin membrane, called the pleura.  Our body produces pleural liquid in small amounts to lubricate the walls of the pleura.  Occasionally, however, excess levels of fluid can be produced and collect in the pleural cavity, which is known as benign pleural effusion. If you suffer from this condition you could make a benign pleural effusion claim.

Q:  What symptoms will I suffer if I have benign pleural effusion?

A:  The most common symptoms of benign pleural effusion are chest pain and difficulty breathing. Other symptoms are shortness of breath, a cough, rapid breathing and hiccups.

Q:  Can I make a benign pleural effusion claim?
