What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that attacks the lining of various organs and areas of the body, including the lungs, abdomen and heart. It often is called "asbestos cancer" because asbestos exposure is the overwhelming cause of mesothelioma in the United States. Although doctors currently are studying many experimental treatment options, there is no proven cure for mesothelioma. If you would like more information about mesothelioma, please continue to browse this site or call 1-888-370-0121 to speak with a mesothelioma resource professional.


What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a mineral that was used for many years in thousands of products - from industrial insulation to floor tiles to household appliances. When asbestos is disturbed, it releases tiny fibers, many of which are invisible to the naked eye. When these fibers are inhaled, they travel deep into the lungs where they cause scarring on the inside. This scarring is called ASBESTOSIS. In addition to causing mesothelioma, asbestos fibers also can cause cancer of the lungs, colon and larynx. The damage caused by asbestos dust occurs over many years. This is why asbestosis and mesothelioma are called progressive diseases. People exposed to asbestos dust may not show symptoms for 20, 30 or even 40 years.
