Although mesothelioma patients attempt to battle the cancer and take legal action, the survival rate is sadly less than one year after one is diagnosed with it. Nonetheless, as technology increases and because more doctors are taking an interest in mesothelioma, life expectancy is gradually increasing after diagnosis.
Many mesothelioma patients only have a short time to live because the disease cannot be detected until it is in the later stages. Consistent exposure is the primary cause of mesothelioma and symptoms typically take at least fifty years to develop. Without the symptoms, one is oblivious that they have the disease.
If an individual works in an asbestos factory or feels they may have come across asbestos, they should take it upon themselves to see their family doctor at least every six months. Even though the common doctor does not know how to properly cure the disease, they do know how to detect it.
The Mesomark blood test has emerged for this disease and can detect signs of this cancer when it is in the early stages. This will help many exposed live a longer life because mesothelioma is easier to treat in the early stages.
