Histoplasmosis due to asbestos exposure

How does asbestos exposure lead to histoplasmosis?

Histoplasmosis is an infectious disease caused by breathing in spores of a fungus called Histoplasma capsulatum. The disease can range in severity from symptom-free to minor self-limited to fatal consequences. Owing to their resemblance in clinical presentation, histoplasmosis and asbestos-related lung disorders such as asbestosis, pleural mesothelioma, and lung cancer are often difficult to differentiate.

Visiting a specialist in asbestos-related diseases to receive a second opinion can help confirm you’ve chosen the best option or prevent you from undergoing the wrong treatment. In order to diagnose an asbestos-related pulmonary condition, a doctor will likely ask patients about their symptoms and about their jobs, to determine the extent of their asbestos exposure.

Atraxia Law can help you if you were diagnosed with asbestos-related cancer

Treatment of cancer is not only physically, mentally, and emotionally draining but can also place a major financial burden on patients and caregivers. Because these diseases develop most often due to the negligence of companies well aware of the danger of asbestos, there are financial benefits for those who were unknowingly and unfairly exposed and are diagnosed with asbestos-related cancer.

Because it can take anywhere from ten years to five decades for asbestos to cause damage which results in cancer, asbestos claims can be difficult and hard to navigate without legal help. Another challenging aspect of asbestos-related claims is proving that a party knew for decades that their products contained harmful asbestos and failed to properly warn workers and address the issue. Call Atraxia Law today, and our skilled legal practitioners can help you determine the negligence of asbestos companies.
