Needs of other cancer patients differ from those of MPM victims

Typically, a patient in Ohio suffering from malignant pleural mesothelioma receives psychological care similar to those who suffer from advanced lung cancer. Patients of both forms of cancer complain of concern for their families, the poor attitudes of health-care providers and fear of death. While the two cancers have some similarities in physical and emotional needs, studies show that patients with MPM also have marked differences.

Parents may file product liability claim if toys cause harm

Parents in Ohio may be noticing more precautions in place to ensure the safety of children than in past generations. Car seats, warning labels and food ingredients are just a few examples of efforts made to protect children from harm.

Victims of asbestos-related disease may get compensation

Even though steps are being made to decrease the risk of asbestos exposure, those exposed in the past may still face the consequences in the future.

Asbestos-related cancer may mean prolonged treatment

When someone in Ohio receives a diagnosis of mesothelioma, the prognosis is usually bleak. Mesothelioma often shows no symptoms until the cancer has progressed to its later stages. Because it may present with flu-like symptoms, mesothelioma is sometimes misdiagnosed until the point at which treatment options are limited. Those options, when applied aggressively, along with positive lifestyle changes, may add time and quality to a patient's life.
