Mesothelioma – What is Malignant Mesothelioma Cancer

Perceptions about malignant mesothelioma are changing.

Incidence rates still hover around 3,000 new cases each year in the U.S., according to a 2017 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Exposure to asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral once highly regarded in construction and manufacturing, is still the overwhelming cause of the disease.

However, scientific research and increased awareness are leading to earlier diagnoses, while improved and developing mesothelioma treatments are allowing patients to live longer than ever.
