1. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer.

This disease is considered to be a form of lung cancer. It is caused by an individual breathing in particles of asbestos. This is a very dangerous mineral that can enter the lungs of an individual and cause serious damage. Asbestos has been used in the past to create insulation for homes and buildings making older buildings and homes more susceptible to the chance of having high levels of asbestos.

2. Lung cancer can only be caused by cigarette smoke.

Mesothelioma is a form of this cancer that is caused by asbestos. There is absolutely no need for the individual to ever pick up a cigarette or be around smoke in order to contract this disease. Household conditions, work sites, and environmental factors can cause this disease to occur in people. Anyone with prolonged exposure to asbestos in any of these areas has an increased risk of this disease.

3. There are many treatment options for someone with mesothelioma.

If diagnosed early, there will be a much better chance to successfully treat this lung cancer. Surgery is often a treatment option that people must choose. The removal of tissue in and around the lungs will be necessary through a surgical procedure. In extreme cases, a lung or part of the diaphragm will have to be removed. Radiation and chemotherapy are two other treatment options that are commonly used.

4. Lung cancer treatment is not important.

Treating mesothelioma and other forms of cancer is vital. Without the proper and appropriate treatment, the individual can become sicker, lose a lung, or die. Seeking treatment is very easy. Consulting a physician, researching on the Internet, and speaking with others who have suffered from cancer in the past can help an individual choose the best option.

5. Asking God for help and deliverance from disease can provide hope and healing.

Isaiah 53:5 - But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
