Is it possible to develop mesothelioma without asbestos exposure?
I have been diagnosed with malignant meothelioma based on a surgical biopsy. Since I am faced with deciding how to "treat" an uncurable cancer, I welcome any insight. I am a 78 yr old female with a previous bout with early breast cancer, treated and "cured"with surgery (2006) and a later case of rectal cancer treated with surgery (2014). The surgeon who performed the biopsy said it looked like breast cancer, but the pathology claims mesothelioma. I don't see my oncologist until July 12.
