Understanding Mesothelioma



Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that is caused by asbestos and is only diagnosed in about 3,000 people each year in the United States. Because mesothelioma is so rare, getting up-to-date and understandable information can be a great challenge for patients and caregivers. To help fill this gap, CURE published Understanding Mesothelioma, Second Edition in 2013, an updated version of the original book that now includes information on both pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma.

Understanding Mesothelioma offers patients and caregivers in-depth information about this unique cancer including causes, diagnosis, new treatment options, legal issues, caregiving and resources. Understanding Mesothelioma will help patients and caregivers navigate the treatment process, while reading survivor stories that both educate and inspire.

The printing and distribution of Understanding Mesothelioma has been made possible by the generous support of the law firm of Baron & Budd.
