Mesothelioma Information & Help

If you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or think you might be at risk for developing the disease, you might feel scared, confused or angry. But you don't need to be alone. We can help.

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that can be difficult to diagnose. Several diseases can cause symptoms similar to mesothelioma. To get the best treatment for lung related diseases, it's important to seek medical help as early as possible. An early diagnosis provides the best chance for effective treatment to prolong your life. Promising research is going on right now that gives hope for better treatments, and hopefully a cure for this aggressive disease in the future.

Mesothelioma has been conclusively linked to asbestos exposure. Asbestos-related illnesses have occurred in workers in many industries where this insulating material was used. However, people exposed to asbestos secondarily can develop lung-related medical problems. If you have worked in an asbestos-related industry or lived in close contact with someone who did, there is a chance you may develop lung problems, including mesothelioma.

If you suspect you've been exposed to asbestos through your job, a family member or the environment, you can protect your health by getting more information. You may not notice symptoms right away. Even minimal exposure to air-borne asbestos can cause health problems. Navy veteran's should always be mindful of their jobsite asbestos exposure as mesothelioma navy cases are among some of the most prevalent. It can take many years for problems to develop. Therefore, frequent monitoring should be continued throughout your life whether you're a veteran or otherwise. Submit your contact information for a free packet on mesothelioma today.

There are many resources to help you navigate the medical and financial issues you may be faced with. Information about the diagnosis and treatment of this serious cancer is available. You can get support in finding the best treatments, and coping with the effects of mesothelioma. There may be financial compensation available for mesothelioma sufferers. Learn more about your rights and possible financial assistance as well.
