Malignant mesothelioma is the most serious of all asbestos-related diseases. It is a rare form of cancer in which malignant cells are found in the sac lining of various organs and cavities of the body, known as the mesothelium.
Difficult to diagnose and treat, prognosis for mesothelioma is generally poor. Virtually all cases of malignant mesothelioma are attributable to asbestos exposure, making this an preventable cancer.
Statistically, mesothelioma is a rare cancer: about three to four thousand cases are diagnosed in the US each year. This can make finding information on mesothelioma somewhat tricky. As an "orphan" disease, mesothelioma is not a common diagnosis for most doctors to make, and many physicians may be unfamiliar with the latest surgical techniques, novel drugs, and clinical trials available.
Abestos: did you mean asbestos? Common mispellings of asbestos include aspestis, aspestos, & asbestoes.
