Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer caused primarily by exposure to asbestos. The condition is both unique and complex, and presents in different parts of the body and in numerous subtypes. It is important for patients, their loved ones and caregivers to understand the disease, as well as what medical and legal options are available for those who have it.
At Mesothelioma.net, we are committed to helping asbestos victims and their families with top quality, free information and resources, as well as a full understanding of the options and assistance that are available. We encourage readers to explore our comprehensive library of legal and financial articles and to reach out to us for help.
Mesothelioma is extremely rare and poorly understood. Because we believe in the importance of providing reliable information, we have established a rigorous editorial process that ensures that all of our material is not only up-to-date and factual, but easy to understand and informative.
What We Write About

Prior to publishing any health and medical-related articles, our teams check multiple sources to ensure that all of the medical information we provide is factual, that all descriptions of treatment options are to up-to-date, that all health statistics we present are current, and that all sources are properly credited.
Our health and medical writers source their content exclusively from reputable and respected medical publications, peer-reviewed journals, medical databases, government organizations, and board-certified physicians who specialize in research and treatment of malignant mesothelioma.
Legal and Financial
Our legal team is committed to providing our readers with free resources and guidance regarding their legal options and financial assistance. Our legal writers are attorneys. They have decades of experience in dealing with mesothelioma and asbestos litigation, and stay current on the latest developments in the field by attending national and international mesothelioma conferences. We also curate articles on claims, lawsuits, trials and settlements, government assistance, and financial options.
Asbestos trust funds have become an increasingly popular way for asbestos victims to obtain compensation for their injuries, and we dedicate a significant amount of coverage to this important legal option. Our writers keep you up-to-date on companies that have established these funds, as well as providing valuable information on eligibility requirements and average distributions.
Military Veteran Support
Our nation’s military veterans represent the largest single demographic of asbestos victims, so we have created in-depth resources for those who’ve served in all branches of the military. We provide detailed information on filing veterans claims, available government assistance, medical help and financial support.
Information for veterans is frequently updated by our Veteran Support and legal team and is sourced from the U.S. government.
