What is Mesothelioma

Many of you have wonder as to What is Mesothelioma ?

Mesothelioma is a rare form of Malignant Cancer that is formed in inner linings of the Chest and sometimes in the inner lining of the abdominal cavity.  Like Smoking is linked to Lung Cancer and Throat Cancer, the link to Mesothelioma is exposure to Asbestors, either at work or at home.

Like Lung and Brain Cancer, the survival rate from Mesothelioma is extremely low, and early diagnosis is the key. Often the life expectancy after a late diagnosis or detection of Mesothelioma is only 8 - 12 months.

The treatment involves one or more of 1) Chemotherapy 2) Radiation 3) Surgery. Most often for Mesothelioma, a combination of Chemotherapy and Radiation is used in the begining and surgery as the last resort. All of these have their own side effects.
