Story

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer in the chest or abdomen, caused by inhaling asbestos fibres. It affects over 5,400 people in the UK, and numbers have increased over the last four decades. At this time there is no cure and the disease often kills with frightening speed – the average time of survival after diagnosis is only 11 months. The number of people dying every year from mesothelioma is around 2,500 (HSE 2016). 

The  Leicester Mesothelioma Research Programme 

This is a partnership between the University of Leicester, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and Mesothelioma UK. The Leicester network will push forward new treatments for mesothelioma and will offer real hope to people diagnosed with the disease.
