Prolonged exposure to asbestos-or, in some cases, even moderate contact-can lead to a devastating cancer called mesothelioma. This program examines the specific causes of the disease while presenting case studies involving a variety of patient experiences. Viewers learn how mesothelioma occurs when malignant cells form in the protective sac, or mesothelium, covering many internal organs. Dr. Harvey Paas of the NYU Langone Medical Center and Dr. John Costanzi of Lone Star Oncology Consultants explain diagnosis methods and newly developed treatments, while male and female patients describe the hazards that may have caused their cancers and what they are doing to survive and thrive.
