Mesothelioma & Asbestos: Some things you should know, Austin, Texas

Mesothelioma is the signature cancer of asbestos exposure. It is a rare form of cancer which develops in the mesothelium, the thin lining that covers many internal organs, most commonly in the lungs or gastrointestinal tract. While there are some treatments, there is no known cure. Hendler Lyons Flores is one of the nation's leading mesothelioma law firms and recommends seeking the legal counsel of a mesothelioma lawyer if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with this rare and dangerous disease.

Every year, thousands of Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma. Often, the disease does not manifest for decades after exposure to asbestos, making the identification of those who are most at risk highly difficult. The prevalence of the use of asbestos throughout the early 20th century means almost anyone can develop mesothelioma.

30 million tons of asbestos were used in thousands products, in addition to its widespread adoption by the construction industry. In fact, Italian researchers recently reported that mesothelioma is reaching epidemic levels worldwide. There are several thousand new cases diagnosed every year in the United States, so if you or a loved one is facing this disease, you don't have to face it alone.

The asbestos industry has long known of the link between their product and mesothelioma. If you or someone you know has developed mesothelioma, the lawyers at Hendler Lyons Flores can help.
