NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We literally make on-the-spot access to the nation's most skilled and qualified mesothelioma attorneys very easy for a US Veteran with this rare cancer if they call us anytime at 800-714-0303. We also pride ourselves as being a second-to-none resource for medical treatment options for a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma.
"Our website now provides a list of almost every hospital in the nation that has experience in treating mesothelioma. We go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to financial compensation and medical treatment options for a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma—nationwide. Unfortunately, a VA Medical Center is probably not going to be the type of medical facility a Navy Veteran should receive their medical treatment at. We do not want Navy Veterans with mesothelioma standing in a seemingly never ending line at a VA Medical Center.
"If a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma or their family call us at 800-714-0303, we will do our best to try to get them seen by one of the hospitals we suggest without incurring additional cost. This is a remarkable service, it is free, and it would be an honor for us to assist a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in this way." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

- New England: Massachusetts General-Brigham and Women's in Boston
- New York and New Jersey: Columbia Presbyterian Memorial Sloan Kettering
- Maryland: Johns Hopkins

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. This year between 2500, and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is attributable to exposure to asbestos.
High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, steel mill workers, oil refinery workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, pipefitters, miners, auto mechanics, machinists, pulp or paper mill workers, printers, firemen, rail road workers and construction workers. In most instances people with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
According to the CDC the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.
