73-year-old deceased mesothelioma victim (Texas resident) who was exposed through his work as a mechanic doing maintenance and repair on ground equipment at a major airport
Some of the top treatment centers for patients with mesothelioma in the United States are:
Mesothelioma is a fairly rare form of cancer. Only about 2,000 to 3,000 cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed annually in the United States. Almost 75% of mesothelioma cases are pleural mesothelioma, affecting the lining of the lungs or the “pleura.”
Peritoneal mesothelioma—cancer of the mesothelial that lines the abdominal cavity, or the peritoneum—accounts for about 20% of remaining cases. Pericardial mesothelioma—cancer of the pericardium, which is the lining around the heart—and testicular mesothelioma, which is cancer of the lining around the testicles, are even more rare. It is important to find a doctor who has experience in treating mesothelioma. Most doctors and hospitals do not have this experience. Even highly experienced oncologists may have no experience in treating mesothelioma. Finding a knowledgeable doctor could make all the difference in your treatment.
