What is Mesothelioma?

Malignant mesothelioma is a rare but serious cancer of the lining of the lungs or abdomen. It is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos exposure occurred during military service in over 30% of all mesothelioma cases. Veterans from all branches of service are at risk. Vets of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps hold the highest risk of developing mesothelioma.

One of the most common locations for Vets’ asbestos exposure was on Navy ships. Thousands of service members were exposed to dangerous amounts of asbestos. Select your ship type to learn more about where asbestos may have been lurking.
