Mesothelioma (cancer of the mesothelium) is a disease in which cells

of the mesothelium become abnormal and divide without control or

order. They can invade and damage nearby tissues and organs. Cancer

cells can also metastasize (spread) from their original site to other

parts of the body. Most cases of mesothelioma begin in the pleura or

peritoneum.
How common is mesothelioma?
Although reported incidence rates have increased in the past 20

years, mesothelioma is still a relatively rare cancer. About 2,000

new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in the United States each

year. Mesothelioma occurs more often in men than in women and risk

increases with age, but this disease can appear in either men or

women at any age.
What are the risk factors for mesothelioma?
Working with asbestos is the major risk factor for mesothelioma. A

history of asbestos exposure at work is reported in about 70 percent

to 80 percent of all cases. However, mesothelioma has been reported

in some individuals without any known exposure to asbestos.
Who is at increased risk for developing mesothelioma?
Since the early 1940s, millions of American workers have been exposed

to asbestos dust. Initially, the risks associated with asbestos

exposure were not known. However, an increased risk of developing

mesothelioma was later found among shipyard workers, people who work

in asbestos mines and mills, producers of asbestos products, workers

in the heating and construction industries, and other tradespeople.
The risk of asbestos-related disease increases with heavier exposure

to asbestos and longer exposure time. However, some individuals with

only brief exposures have developed mesothelioma. On the other hand,

not all workers who are heavily exposed develop asbestos-related

diseases.
There is some evidence that family members and others living with

asbestos workers have an increased risk of developing mesothelioma,

and possibly other asbestos-related diseases. This risk may be the

result of exposure to asbestos dust brought home on the clothing and

hair of asbestos workers.
What are the symptoms of mesothelioma?
-->
Symptoms of mesothelioma may not appear until 30 to 50 years after

exposure to asbestos. Shortness of breath and pain in the chest due

to an accumulation of fluid in the pleura are often symptoms of

pleural mesothelioma. Symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma include

weight loss and abdominal pain and swelling due to a buildup of fluid

in the abdomen. Other symptoms of peritoneal mesothelioma may include

bowel obstruction, blood clotting abnormalities, anemia, and fever.

If the cancer has spread beyond the mesothelium to other parts of the

body, symptoms may include pain, trouble swallowing, or swelling of

the neck or face.
These symptoms may be caused by mesothelioma or by other, less

serious conditions. It is important to see a doctor about any of

these symptoms. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis.

Structured Settlement
A Structured Settlement is an agreement between a personal injury

victim ( a Plaintiff ) and an Insurance company ( the Defendant ) to

compensate the Plaintiff by the defendant with long term periodic

payments instead of a single cash lump sum.Payments can be tailored

to each individual plaintiffs needs, to help meet expenses such as

on-going medical and living expenses, education, children needs &

support etc’ The fixed annuity payments are tax-free to the claimant,

a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) feature is available, that can

help offset the effects of inflation over time, payments can continue

as long as the claimant lives thus providing him the maximum

benefits.Structured settlements are encouraged by plaintiffs lawyers,

Courts, Insurance companies and the legislators alike as they all

agree it is the best solution to all parties involved especially for

the claimant.The annuity can be transformed in part or in full to a

cash lump sum via private funds and should be approved by the Court.

The funds are most interested to make these deals as they are very

profitable to them because they take the long term tax free payments

and in exchange pay the annuity holder less than the face value but

in cash.These same funds are handling Lottery winners long term

payments into one single lump sum as well as all kinds services of

cash against future payments.
