Cancer Centers

The condition that is known as malignant mesothelioma has likely existed ever since humans began to use asbestos. But the disease only received its official name and description in 1960, when it was first cited in an article that referenced case studies of patients in South Africa. Before that time, the condition was referred to as a type of lung cancer.

Since those earliest days, the rare condition has been studied by some of the greatest minds in science and has become much better understood as a unique disease that requires its own specific treatment protocols. This has resulted in the establishment of numerous cancer centers that are dedicated to treating malignant mesothelioma patients, as well as to finding a cure for this rare and fatal form of cancer.

There are mesothelioma research and treatment centers located all over the world, and the majority of them can be found in the United States. These facilities have attracted researchers and physicians who are committed to solving the mystery of mesothelioma and providing those who have been diagnosed with the condition the highest quality of life and the best possible prognosis.
