Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Malignant Mesothelioma of the Tunica Vaginalis Testis

It is stressful for any person to find out that he or she has contracted mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure. It becomes even more stressful after finding out what part of the body contains most of the cancer. A victim or the victim’s doctor may be fortunate enough to find that the cancer may be localized. In cases of malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis, victims are diagnosed with a tumor in or surrounding the testicles.

Most cases of malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis occur in men between 55 and 75 years of age. Victims usually complain of:

  • Swelling of the scrotum
  • Pain inside the scrotum
  • Irritation of the scrotum

Unfortunately, most cases of malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis are not known until these symptoms occur. Ultrasound, CT scans, and MRI scans will usually reveal the tumor and the progress of the cancer.

Victims have almost always complained of having been exposed to asbestos or asbestos-containing items. Doctors may recommend that these victims undergo adjuvant chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a mixture of the two. Victims may be able to receive compensation for any medical costs and/or lost wages that were incurred due to exposure to mesothelioma.
