While mesothelioma usually attacks the linings of the lungs, it can also affect other body cavities and organs. Testicular mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer attacking the membranes surrounding the testicles (known as the tunica vaginalis testis). If you or a loved one has developed testicular mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation.

Asbestos Exposure — The Cause Of Testicular Mesothelioma
Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of testicular mesothelioma. Asbestos exposure can occur in many occupations that use asbestos-containing materials, including mining, insulating, shipbuilding, pipe fitting, plumbing, power plant generation, construction, textile manufacturing, auto repair, and appliance repair.
Symptoms of the disease, which include the appearance of testicular lumps and swelling of the scrotum, may appear decades after exposure to asbestos. The cancer is extremely aggressive and can spread quickly to other parts of the body.
Our mesothelioma lawyers seek compensation for testicular mesothelioma victims from manufacturers of asbestos-containing products and from employers that expose workers to asbestos fibers.
