Helping patients manage the stress of living with mesothelioma

Medical providers know that cancer is stressful for patients. On a daily basis, oncology staff work with patients who are trying to stay on top of bills and manage a household while fighting for their lives. Nurses, physicians and other providers try to help minimize the strain by doing what they can to accommodate patients coming in for chemotherapy, radiation and treatments, but patients still suffer.

The search for an effective mesothelioma treatment is a race against time. Mesothelioma, an aggressive form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos fibers, is difficult to treat. Even with an intense regimen of chemotherapy and radiation, the median survival rates for individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma remain low at just nine to 17 months.

Asbestos exposure situation leads to multiple lawsuits

The dangers of asbestos remain an extremely high risk for many people in Minnesota and other states. Depending on where a particular person lives or works, the risk may be higher or lower. Those who live near or work in factories or older building structures are often at most risk. For people in another state in a community that contained a vermiculite mine, not only was the asbestos exposure risk apparently high, many people became ill and entered litigation to seek compensation for the damages they suffered.

Any time construction on old buildings takes place in Minnesota or another state, there are always potential health concerns for workers and anyone else exposed to the construction areas in question. This is because old buildings often present asbestos exposure risks, especially regarding demolition and renovation types of work. Work on a particular construction project in another state has come to a halt because of problems related to asbestos.
