Veterans and Pleural Mesothelioma
Pleural mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos and unfortunately, veterans are one of the most at-risk groups for acquiring this cancer due to the military’s heavy use of asbestos. This cancer takes between 20-50 years to develop so there are many ex-servicemen and women who will likely have this cancer, but show no symptoms so far. Organizations like The Pleural Mesothelioma Center are here to help. They can assist veterans before and after a pleural mesothelioma diagnosis by answering any and all questions and providing 1-1 consultations to find the best resource for their cancer journey.
