How do I know if I have asbestosis?

Numerous Pennsylvania workers have exposed themselves to asbestos-containing materials unknowingly.

New mesothelioma treatment offers hope

A new treatment is being used on pleural mesothelioma at the University of California, Los Angeles: cryoblation. Cryoblation, also known as cryosurgery, uses extreme cold to treat tumors. The microsurgery technique has been around for a long time, but this is the first it has been used to treat mesothelioma.

What you should know about malignant mesothelioma
