There is often no happy ending for those diagnosed with mesothelioma.
As doctors describe treatment options and prognoses for those with malignant mesothelioma the news often goes from bad to worse. Often patients worry not only about themselves, but also about their families.
While you may have cause for concern about your family’s emotional and financial needs, you do not need to worry about spending your remaining time with your family.
Mesothelioma cancer, like other forms of cancer, is not contagious.
Often, when more than one member of a family receives a mesothelioma diagnosis it is because they had a similar exposure to asbestos or because asbestos fibers came home on the clothing of one person and exposed other members of the family. That risk of exposure has passed.
If you know someone suffering from malignant mesothelioma, please share this page with him and assure him that he is not putting his family, friends or caretakers at risk because his condition is not contagious.
