Mesothelioma is a devastating cancer, usually affecting the lining of the lungs and stomach, which is only known to be caused by asbestos. 
Mesothelioma UK was launched in 2004 with support from Macmillan Cancer Support and became an independent charity in 2009.  The charity is dedicated to providing specialist information, support and education to all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers and is committed to improving the care and treatment of patients.
