Mesothelioma is a genetic disease caused by asbestos exposure. Genetic not in the heredity sense, but meaning a gene mutation to cells within the body, which is caused by the presence of asbestos fibers. Mesothelioma is considered an aggressive yet rare malignancy (2,300 diagnoses per year) that grows and develops on the protective tissue lining of internal organs. This lining is known as the mesothelium.
Once tiny asbestos fibers have entered the body via esophageal or tracheal pathways, they will become lodged into the protective tissue lining mentioned above. This lodging disrupts natural cell development, which promotes the growth of abnormal cells. Uncontrollable growth and build up of irregular cells are the general cause of all tumors.
TreatMesothelioma.org has designed their website to be the first step towards understanding and surviving mesothelioma cancer. They have the largest collection of information about the traditional treatments and complementary therapies that are available for curative and palliative purposes for not only mesothelioma but for all forms of cancer.
The entirety of their organization is run by volunteers and with a foundation built on GENUINE care, that is exactly what Veterans, patients, and their family members will receive. This is what makes TreatMesothelioma.org so unique as their only motive is to improve a patient’s mesothelioma prognosis and life expectancy.
Thank you Mesothelioma Treatment Community.
