"100 Questions and Answers About Mesothelioma" by Dr. Harvey Pass, MD

free mesothelioma book"100 Questions & Answers About Mesothelioma," by Dr. Harvey Pass, MD, a world-renowned mesothelioma expert, offers profound insight and guidance to those struggling with mesothelioma.

This small volume is an exceptional resource on the illness, written in a compact, easy-to-follow Q & A format.

Dr. Pass’s instructional approach to understanding and handling mesothelioma is extraordinarily comprehensive, navigating the reader through each stage of dealing with the disease, ranging from the initial diagnosis to pursuing different types of treatment. The questions are concise, and Dr. Pass answers them with a blend of scientific savvy and compassionate sincerity. Among the questions asked are:

  • What are the symptoms of mesothelioma, and how is it diagnosed?
  • What are the survival rates for mesothelioma?
  • What surgery is performed for mesothelioma?
  • What happens if the disease recurs?

And apart from being a superlative medical resource, the book is also an excellent companion for those interested in learning more about the legal implications of having mesothelioma. In the chapter titled "The Politics of Mesothelioma," Dr. Pass openly acknowledges that many companies as far back as the early twentieth century were fully aware that they were manufacturing hazardous, asbestos-containing products. With this context, Dr. Pass emphasizes the importance of finding a qualified, reputable mesothelioma attorney.

Dr. Pass’s contributions comprise the more practical, medical portion of "100 Questions." But it is Susan Vento’s heartfelt advice that supplies this book with a personal touch. Ms. Vento, a co-author of the book, is the widow of Congressman Bruce Vento, who died of mesothelioma in October 2000. And as part of her commitment to support mesothelioma and asbestos-related disease victims and their families, Ms. Vento shares her own experiences and guidance in this book. Often touching and always helpful, her recollections and bits of advice give readers an invaluable, firsthand account of how one woman and her husband lived with this illness.
