Mesothelioma: A Form of Cancer

My aunt died of lung cancer in October of last year. We thought everything was fine not until signs of recurrence manifested in March. Her passing was painful especially to her immediate family. Her daughters are only 11 years and 14 years young respectively.
Everytime I get to hear stories of cancer patients, I always get curious. When I heard of mesothelioma, I learned that it's also a form of cancer caused by too much exposure to asbestos. Not too common, huh. Patients that have been diagnosed with this disease can opt to undergo treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radio therapy.
