Maine Mesothelioma Treatment CentersIt is a sad fact that hundreds of Maine citizens have been exposed to asbestos and subsequently developed mesothelioma cancer or another serious related illness. Sadder still, several people who have been exposed asbestos will develop such conditions and be diagnosed in the future.

Fortunately, mesothelioma treatment centers in Maine and throughout the United States are filled with hard working, highly qualified health care specialists with experience in treating mesothelioma specifically. These mesothelioma treatment centers aim to provide comprehensive treatment including palliative care, surgery, chemotherapy, and new innovative treatment options.

Maine: Mesothelioma Cancer and related diseases

Between the late 70s and late 90s, nearly 400 people in Maine died from asbestos cancer diseases including mesothelioma and asbestosis. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that affects the lining of the heart, chest cavity, or abdominal organs. Asbestosis is a non-cancerous though serious disease characterized by scarring of the lungs. Both of these conditions are almost exclusively caused by asbestos exposure, which occurs when the invisible fibers of this toxin become airborne and are then ingested or inhaled.
