Mesothelioma cancer (or asbestos cancer, as it is commonly referred to), is an aggressive form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Currently, there is no known cure for mesothelioma cancer or asbestos cancer, but there are several different treatment options available for people living with this disease.
If you've been diagnosed with mesothelioma, then exposure to asbestos, even as long as 50 years ago, is almost certainly the cause. The Asbestos Industry has been consistently held responsible for knowingly putting people at risk of contracting this devastating illness. There is significant compensation available to help victims of this difficult disease.

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that attacks cells in the surfaces of the body’s internal organs. These cells, called mesothelial cells, form a lining for the organs that is called the mesothelium. Mesothelioma is a disease that’s very closely linked with asbestos exposure.
In the U.S., at least a few thousand people each year are diagnosed by a doctor with mesothelioma. More men than women get it, and it’s diagnosed more often in older adults—though mesothelioma can occur at any age. More people have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in the past 20 years due to earlier decades of unchecked use of asbestos.
