There are many ways that mesothelioma may harm the body. Some of these ways include cell damage, genetic changes to the insides and modification to the body. It is also possible for growths and formations inside the cells of the victim to cause more injury. Such injuries cannot be reversed and may lead to the need for compensation. This article and a preceding one will discuss some physical injuries that may result from mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma injuries – Tumors and Cell Damage
Cancer is a type of cell growth. These cells make an exact copy of themselves until they become a mass in the body. In most cases the cancer cannot be controlled as it makes copies of itself in the body. There are many types of damaged cells that form in the body. These could include genetic changes, inflamed cells, cancerous mutations that cannot be controlled, severe growth, etc. When fibers inflame cells, this causes irritated reactions with mesothelioma. Such reactions may lead to genetic scarring and cellular damage inside the body. A person may suffer serious pain because of this if they do not have medical assistance.
Genetic changes happen because the fibers that enter the cells change the life cycle of each molecule. When the life cycle has changed it leads to cancerous growths. The next stage after the change to the molecule life cycle is mutations with cancer and uncontrollable growth. This results in the production of free radicals which cause further damage to the DNA and then mutate healthy cells.
In most cases mesothelioma is directly linked to asbestos or exposure to hazardous materials. If you have mesothelioma you need to file a claim for compensation. Compensation provides for treatment that is normally very expensive. Speak to a lawyer to represent your interests in filing a mesothelioma claim against the company or person responsible.
