When I was going to college, the university that I attended was undergoing of a full-scale renovation.  Many of the original buildings on campus were crumbling, and although there were new construction and renovation initiatives in place, many students had to attend classes in buildings at the same time that they were being stripped of asbestos.  To bring light to the hazardous situations, professors and students alike wore buttons satirizing the university’s recruiting motto, “Success — Expect it” with “Asbestos — Expect it.”

The main concern for these students, staff, and faculty members was inhaling the dangerous particulate matter was that was so often indicated in cases of mesothelioma.  Mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the lining of mesothelial cells in the chest and abdomen.  Many mesotheliomal cases are found in individuals working in occupational fields where they come in contact with harmful particulate matter in the air, particularly asbestos.  Earlier posts on Battling Cancer discussed both symptoms and difficulties of diagnosis of mesothelioma.

Here’s a collection of useful posts about mesothelioma that I found around the web:

Eden at the Mesothelioma Portal has a great checklist for patients undergoing treatment for mesothelioma to ask their doctors in an article entitled, “Who Treats Mesothelioma?”

The Mesothelioma Blog has an interesting news story about how a car accident resulted in a truck unearthing asbestos in an elementary school classroom.

What does exactly does mesothelioma litigation entail?  Ask Mesothelioma discusses just that very thing in “Mesothelioma Lawyers Know Exactly What is Going On.”  Also, Wika over at  A Cancer Blog has a really useful article on mesothelioma wrongful death lawsuits.

Got an interesting article to share?  I’m link friendly — share it in the comments!
