A Patient's Guide to Mesothelioma

168 pages1 hour


Mesothelioma is a relatively rare but serious illness, and it’s natural to feel overwhelmed when it strikes close to home. But you don’t have to face this life-changing diagnosis – or its consequences – alone. Use this book to get the information you need to make informed choices about your medical care and legal rights. And visit us online at for additional assistance. Written in plain English, with easy-to-understand definitions of technical terms right in the text, this book is designed to serve two purposes: It’s a reference for you to turn to with your medical and legal questions, as well as a personal journal for you to track your treatments and other important information in one convenient place. The book is divided into three sections. Chapters 1 through 5 cover the medical side of mesothelioma and asbestos-related disease. Chapters 6 through 8 help you navigate and understand your legal options if you (or a loved one) suffer from the effects of asbestos exposure. In the back of the book, you’ll find a glossary, a list of doctors and treatment centers that specialize in mesothelioma and related diseases, and useful charts and checklists for keeping track of your symptoms, treatments, and important documents and records.
