The Mesothelioma Victims Center is one of the most quoted sources in the nation about diagnosed victims of mesothelioma getting the best possible compensation for this rare form of cancer directly linked to asbestos exposure.

The group is increasing their efforts this week to make certain that all US citizens who had moderate to heavy exposure to asbestos during the 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s at a workplace such as a shipyard, power plant, oil refinery, or at a manufacturing facility get annual medical check ups. This checkup needs to focus on any potential medical issue caused by the asbestos exposure. When speaking to the medical doctor, the individual exposed to asbestos should ask about IPF.

What is IPF? Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and ultimately fatal disease characterized by a progressive decline in lung function.

According to the Imperial College of London, "Some cases of the lung disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) may be linked with asbestos exposure, according to the results of a new study. Researchers have suggested that a proportion of IPF may be due to unknown exposure to asbestos."
