The National Cancer Institute states that: "Malignant Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer, is a disease in which cancer (malignant) cells are found in the sac lining the chest (the pleura) or abdomen (the peritoneum). Most people with malignant mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they breathed asbestos." Asbestos causes a variety of diseases including fatal cancers such as mesothelioma. At the moment there are no mesothelioma cures, and now workers exposed to asbestos in the 1940's, 50's, 60's 70's, and 80's are getting these diseases in the 2000's due to the long latency period of asbestos disease.

A doctor should be seen if a person has shortness of breath, pain in the chest, or pain or swelling in the abdomen.

The purpose of this site is to assist and empower people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, and their families, to best understand their options in coping with this disease. This Mesothelioma Resource Web contains in-depth information on treatment options, coping resources, and the ongoing effort to find a mesothelioma cure.

Before getting into the medical details, it is important to note that mesothelioma has been shown to be caused by exposure to asbestos. Furthermore, internal documents from the files of asbestos insulation manufacturers have been uncovered showing that they were well aware of health implications of their products and that they chose to hide that information from the public and their customers. These companies are now being held responsible for compensating people who contract asbestos related diseases. For these reasons, mesothelioma sufferers and their families can benefit by learning about their legal rights by clicking here for Cooper, Hart, Leggiero & Whitehead, PLCC* and then returning to get into the medical information about the disease and treatments.

Incriminating Company Documents

It has been firmly established that many of the corporations who manufactured asbestos insulation knew of the dangers of their product. Memos and other internal company documents have been uncovered from these corporations which show a conscious effort to prevent the truth about asbestos's health impacts from being shared with those exposed to it.
