HOUSTON, Aug. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesothelioma.us, a free online resource that features a wide variety of educational articles about mesothelioma, is now officially sponsored by an attorney at law from Houston, Texas. As a spokesperson for http://mesothelioma.us/ noted, the attorney is pleased to sponsor such a comprehensive website that has already helped people from all 50 states.
For example, one of the articles that has received a lot of attention from visitors to Mesothelioma.us discusses the common symptoms of mesothelioma, which is a rare form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. These symptoms include a persistent cough; chest pains, which often get worse when taking a deep breath; loss of appetite and weight loss; a hoarse voice; recurring cases of pneumonia and/or bronchitis, and wheezing when breathing.
As the article explains, since symptoms of mesothelioma may not appear until 25 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos, being aware of these health issues is extremely important, as it may cause someone to seek medical attention right away.
"Roughly 15 percent of mesothelioma cases are discovered in the early stages before cancer has spread to other parts of the body," noted the article on Mesothelioma.us, adding that survival rate within 5 years from the time of diagnosis is 50 percent, provided there is no cancer found in the lymph nodes at the time of surgery.
"Prompt attention to symptoms can result in early diagnosis and treatment can result in a cure for some patients. However, for others this can improve their chances of treatment extending their life, as well as relief of some of the symptoms."
In addition to the article about symptoms of mesothelioma, Mesothelioma.us provides people with current information about treatment options, cancer centers in the United States that treat the disease, veterans claims and benefits information, and a list of mesothelioma lawyers who can help.
Mesothelioma.us is an authoritative website that includes comprehensive resources for mesothelioma patients and their families. The site includes up-to-date information about treatment options, major U.S. cancer centers, clinical trials, veteran's claims and benefit information and mesothelioma lawyers.
