Pericardial Mesothelioma Lawyers
Of all the forms of mesothelioma, pericardial mesothelioma is the rarest. This cancer attacks the membrane surrounding the heart. If asbestos fibers become trapped between the layers of the membrane, mesothelioma may start to form. Researchers estimate that only 1-6% of mesothelioma victims suffer from this specific type of cancer, but it remains a threat to people who have been exposed to asbestos.

Symptoms of Pericardial Mesothelioma
One of the reasons that mesothelioma is so dangerous is because it can take years, and even decades, for symptoms to become apparent, and often, by the time a person is showing symptoms it is too late to effectively treat the disease. The sooner you can identify and begin to treat mesothelioma, the easier it may be to slow its progression, making it important for those with a history of asbestos exposure to be aware of the symptoms of pericardial mesothelioma. Some of the most common signs of this disease include:
- Pain in the chest
- Long-lasting coughs
- Irregular heartbeats
- Fluttering of the heart
- Difficulty breathing
Currently, there is no cure for pericardial mesothelioma, however, with new advances every day, there could soon be more options available to victims.
