Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the lungs or abdomen that is caused by exposure to asbestos. In over 30% of all mesothelioma cases, asbestos exposure happened during military service. Veterans from all branches of service are at risk, with the most common being the United States Navy and the Marines. There are a variety of mesothelioma treatments available, as well as doctors in the VA system who are capable of treating it. For more information, check out https://www.
