Coping with a Mesothelioma Diagnosis
The Internet is often the first resource new patients and family members turn to for information when they are diagnosed with mesothelioma. While there are countless websites about mesothelioma, far too few of them deliver accurate, meaningful information.
Each year, nearly 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma. It is a cancer caused by asbestos exposure that most commonly affects the lungs (pleural mesothelioma) or the abdomen (peritoneal mesothelioma).
