    Do you need injury experts in St Peters after becoming sick due to asbestos exposure in the workplace? Asbestos exposure is known to cause a wide range of serious diseases. Mesothelioma is one of them. A lot of people who now suffer FROM mesothelioma (or meso as it is sometimes referred to) seek the help of Accident Advice Helpline. There is no need to look for local injury experts in St Peters. All you have to do is phone us up to get help from one of our solicitors.

    Mesothelioma is actually cancer. It affects the mesothelial cells in the body. As a result of that, the disease covers the surface of some internal organs. This is a disease that can affect the abdomen, heart or lungs. Unfortunately, mesothelioma is a terminal disease. Even though it cannot be cured, sometimes radiotherapy, chemotherapy or surgery might be worthwhile.

    The different types of mesothelioma

    There are two types of mesothelioma – peritoneal and pleural. Pleural mesothelioma is the disease that affects the majority of people. It is the result of breathing in asbestos fibres. It causes a tumour to form on the lining of the lungs. This can make breathing extremely painful and difficult.

    Peritoneal mesothelioma is the less common form of the disease. However, it is also caused by asbestos exposure. It causes a tumour to develop on the abdomen. This can result in various different problems. It is important to contact a professional personal injury claims company like Accident Advice Helpline if you have been diagnosed with one of these conditions. If you do this, you can find out how solicitors can help you to get the compensation you deserve.

    How it happens

    Mesothelioma affects more men than women. This is mainly because asbestos used to be the mineral of choice at construction sites and shipyards where the majority of workers were male. Unlike asbestosis, for example, mesothelioma can develop even after short periods of exposure to asbestos.

    The workers most commonly affected by mesothelioma are electricians, boilermakers, builders, carpenters, plumbers, etc. Basically, anyone who has ever had to work with asbestos is at risk and should see a doctor if ever the first symptoms appear. It is also recommended to consult solicitors after you have been diagnosed.
