Papillary Mesothelioma Is Caused By Asbestos Exposure
The only known cause of papillary mesothelioma is asbestos exposure. Workers in mining, insulation, shipbuilding, pipe fitting, plumbing, power plant generation, construction, textile manufacturing, auto repair, railroads and appliance repair may be exposed to asbestos in their work environments. Workers can also carry asbestos fibers home on their clothing, inadvertently exposing their families.
Unlike other forms of mesothelioma, papillary mesothelioma is typically slow growing and does not metastasize to affect other areas of the body. As a result, the prognosis is usually favorable. Treatment often consists of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
Our lawyers seek compensation for papillary mesothelioma victims from employers who expose workers to asbestos fibers. We also seek compensation from companies that make products containing asbestos.
