Were You Diagnosed With Pericardial Mesothelioma? You have a Right to Seek Compensation for your Asbestos Illness

Get a free copy of our sourcebook, "Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer, Asbestos Litigation And Your Rights."

Pericardial mesothelioma is a cancer that attacks the pericardium, or the lining, of the heart.

It is the least common form of mesothelioma, found in less than 10 percent of cases.

Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, however, the process by which asbestos causes pericardial mesothelioma specifically is not known. What health workers do know is that inflammation in the pericardium leads to cancerous growths.

Patients typically complain of chest pain or other heart-related symptoms due to a build-up of fluid. Shortness of breath and cough are less common symptoms of pericardial mesothelioma cancer.

According to the Mayo Clinic, a not-for-profit medical practice dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of complex illnesses such as mesothelioma, peritoneal mesothelioma signs and symptoms may include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Abdominal swelling
  • A change in your bowel habits, such as more frequent diarrhea or constipation
  • Lumps of tissue in the abdomen
  • Unexplained weight loss

    If you have received a diagnosis of an asbestos-related illness, you have a right to seek financial compensation through legal action.

    Our attorneys may be able to assist you. Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
