Pericardial Mesothelioma is currently the rarest form of Mesothelioma and has been shown to result from long term exposure to asbestos. As the name suggests, this form of Mesothelioma is a cancer in the lining surrounding the heart. It is not uncommon for Pericardial Mesothelioma symptoms to take longer than the usual 20 to 30 year latency period to appear. Unfortunately, if the symptoms take this long after the initial exposure to appear, it may be too late to offer any effective treatment. Surgery is not always an option because of this, leaving only radiation and chemotherapy as treatment options for the cancer. An aspiration of the chest cavity (with a long needle) can sometimes be performed to remove some excess fluid that will relieve some of the symptoms of Pericardial Mesothelioma. Heart palpitations, chest pain, persistent coughing and shortness of breath are all symptoms to watch for if you know you have been exposed long term to asbestos in your past.

While there is currently no cure for Pericardial or any other cancerous form of Mesothelioma, research and clinical trials are ongoing with a goal to first find effective treatments, so this can no longer be an absolute fatal disease and then to find a cure that may even prevent it from claiming any more innocent lives. It has been shown that most companies that either produced asbestos or used it heavily in production knew of it’s harmful effects on lab animals and yet did nothing to protect their workers, so there is an increased possibility of compensation for the harm done, pain and suffering. Since Pericardial Mesothelioma is a result of long term exposure, then proof of employment (length of time) where the asbestos exposure occurred is very important for a Mesothelioma claim to be made.
