What is Mesothelioma?

Aaron Heckaman: Mesothelioma is a very rare form of cancer that involves, not the lung itself, but the lining of the lungs or the pleura. The only accepted cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. So basically, when a client comes to us and they've been delivered this horrible news, or a family member has been dealt this horrible news, one of the first things we do is spring into action and investigate where that asbestos exposure occurred. Often times that means we're going back in time 40, 50, or 60 years to try to uncover literally every stone that we can to try to locate the source of exposure for that family.
