The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We get calls every week from family members of cancer victims, where a doctor had suggested mesothelioma, but there was never a actual diagnosis to confirm it. We now want to emphasize that without a biopsy or pathology report confirming mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, it is next to impossible for the potential victim or family to ever receive compensation for this illness." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center believes there could be a thousand or more individuals who die each year from mesothelioma without any proper compensation because they never had a procedure called a biopsy done, that would have confirmed the mesothelioma. The Victims Center is doing everything possible to make certain this does not happen to any unsuspecting family. If a medical doctor mentions to an individual, or someone in their family that mesothelioma is a possibility, please call the Mesothelioma Victims Center immediately at 866-714-6466 for steps that are needed to confirm the possible diagnosis of mesothelioma. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "If a medical doctor has suggested the possibility of mesothelioma and has not yet done a biopsy, or is unable to do a biopsy because of the condition of the person (too weak or too sick), please call us immediately at 866-714-6466 so we can carefully explain what needs to happen to determine if in fact mesothelioma is the illness. We are the premier advocates in the nation for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma receiving the best possible compensation, but without a proper diagnosis, the opportunity for mesothelioma compensation is greatly reduced."
