How do I know if websites about mesothelioma are reliable? It seems many are sponsored by law firms.


James Stevenson, MD, Medical Oncologist, responds:

This is a major issue for mesothelioma, as there is a lot of unreliable information on the Internet. A trustworthy website for mesothelioma information is, associated with the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. You can also find information on our program through the Penn Medicine website and reliable information on OncoLink.
