Hi my husband has mesothelioma andnow they said it has spread to around the heart and sternum. Will I be able to care for him at home? We can't afford to pay for a nursing home. Also what is the prognosis? He also has cirrhosis of the liver. Thank you

My husband was a contractor most of his life and knows he was exposed to asbestos. He now has developed what the doctor is describing as cone shaped holes in his lungs as well as multiple Timorese the largest being 7 mm in the lower left lobe. It is too dangerous to biopsy. He has been labeled terminal. Could this be mesothelioma?

I developed a cough in late 1999. I have been to the doctors about 6 times since for chest pains and shortness of breath. They say stress test indicates my heart is fine. I remember in 1983 I was involved in an asbestos tear out on a 1941 ship. I have been coughing mucous occasionally for the last couple of years. Could it be mesothelioma?
