UK raises awareness on Action Mesothelioma Day

Across the pond, cities, agencies, and individuals are joining forces to spread knowledge and awareness about mesothelioma and other potentially fatal effects of exposure to asbestos. To mark Action Mesothelioma Day 2011, groups will gather to hear speakers, share experiences, watch multimedia presentations and meet with mesothelioma lawyers to learn about the legal options.

Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly form of lung cancer that results from exposure to asbestos or products that contain asbestos materials. It occurs when the cells of the mesothelium, a membrane that covers and protects many of internal organs, becomes diseased, abnormal and malignant. The most common form of the disease is pleural mesothelioma, which affects the pleura, a sac surrounding the lungs. However, there are many different forms of the disease, each with its own method of treatment.

Because the symptoms of mesothelioma are similar to those of many other diseases, it is often not diagnosed until its advanced stages. With Mesothelioma Action Day, several advocacy groups are hoping to change this fact. Events scheduled include free meetings with medical professionals and researchers that study the deadly disease, as well as the distribution of information about mesothelioma, its symptoms and the improvements and advancements made in knowledge about the disease and its treatment. In addition, attorneys will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about the legal rights of mesothelioma victims.

On Action Mesothelioma Day in 2010, the primary focus was on do-it-yourself projects in the home, in order to educate homeowners on the potential danger of disturbing asbestos and how to protect themselves from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.
