Sarcomatoid Cell Mesothelioma Cases: What You Need to Know
Sarcomatoid mesothelioma tends to be the result of inhalation of asbestos fibers. Unfortunately, history has shown that many employers have allowed workers to be exposed to dangerous levels of this harmful material. Although this problem has become less widespread once the government enacted legislation regulating the usage and handling of asbestos, some employers have continued to negligently put workers in harm’s way. Be aware, illnesses resulting from exposure to asbestos can take decades to develop.
Additionally, although many people who have developed sarcomatoid mesothelioma were initially exposed to asbestos in the workplace, before we truly understood how dangerous this material can be, it was often used in the manufacture of various household items. Examples include certain types of insulation, siding, vinyl floor tiles, roofing, car brakes, and more. That means it is also possible you or a loved one are now ill because you were exposed to asbestos in your home at some point in the past.

Frequently Asked Questions: Mesothelioma & Asbestos
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a carcinogenic, naturally occurring fibrous mineral. Known for its heat resistance and durability, asbestos has historically been used in insulation, construction materials, automotive parts, and shipbuilding materials.
Why is asbestos dangerous?
Asbestos is made up of small shard-like fibers that can easily become airborne when disturbed. If inhaled or ingested, these fibers can embed within the lining of the lungs, heart, stomach, or testes where they can cause cancer to form years or decades later.
What are asbestos-related diseases?
Asbestos exposure can cause mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
What causes mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is an aggressive and incurable form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Unfortunately, symptoms of mesothelioma may not appear until decades after exposure.
What are the different types of mesothelioma?
Three of the most common types of mesothelioma are pleural mesothelioma, peritoneal mesothelioma, and pericardial mesothelioma.
What are common mesothelioma symptoms?
Common symptoms of mesothelioma include difficulty breathing and chest pains. Peritoneal mesothelioma, which affects the stomach, may cause abdominal swelling, loss of appetite, constipation, abdominal pain, and nausea.
Do I qualify for compensation if I have mesothelioma?

What is the life expectancy for someone with mesothelioma?
There is no cure for mesothelioma. However, patients can receive treatments for mesothelioma that may extend their initial prognosis with proper treatment.

The earlier the diagnosis, the longer the life expectancy and chance of long-term survival.
