I didn’t hear about mesothelioma ever before until I came here in the US. I just hear and see it on tv advertisements. This disease is an asbestos caused cancer of the serous membranes that surround many of the body’s vital organs. The most common form is the pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma. There is no known cure yet but treatments are available. Visit mesotheliomahelp.net for more information.
