Mesothelioma is a cancer of the chest cavity lining, the pleura. It is usually associated with exposure to asbestos, the chemical that was used to fabricate insulation. Mesothelioma is rare, but serious tumor. It usually shows up with pain, shortness of breath, or fluid in the chest on a chest xray. There are only a few surgeons in Florida with experience with this rare tumor. Knowing what operation to recommend for each individual patient takes years of experience and a knowledge of what works for each case. Do not assume that large institutions will have the surgeons with this type of experience. Find out for yourself before making a decision about surgery.
