Is Mesothelioma Lung Cancer?

Asbestos Lawsuit Information

Mesothelioma is a serious and aggressive type of cancer that begins in the mesothelium, or the ling of the lung. Technically, mesothelioma is different from lung cancer which begins in the lungs. While the different between mesothelioma and lung cancer may seem trivial when first described, it is actually quite significant.

The differences between mesothelioma and lung cancer become apparent and significant when treatment options are considered. Since mesothelioma and lung cancer are distinct diseases they require different treatment. A proper diagnosis may lead a patient to hire a doctor experienced in treating a person with his or her particular disease and may result in a patient to make different medical decisions.
