In a Center for Disease Control study, Maryland ranked 16th for mesothelioma-related deaths. Most of the deaths occurred in the Baltimore area. The high rates of asbestosis and mesothelioma in Maryland may be due to the presence of shipyards and power plants in the area. Workers at these locations have an increased risk of being exposed to asbestos because the mineral is used in the construction of power plants and ships.
Following is a list of cancer treatment centers in Maryland. This list of treatment centers is not exhaustive, but may give you a good start to seeking the best mesothelioma treatment for you:
Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center
St. Joseph Medical Center
Greenebaum Cancer Center
University of Maryland
Schwab Family Cancer Center
Western Maryland Health System
Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer, but may respond to treatment when caught early. Treatment centers in Maryland can use a combination of approaches to treat mesothelioma, but the expenses may climb very quickly. If you have developed mesothelioma from asbestos exposure at the workplace or because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation.
If you have mesothelioma, please contact the experienced Baltimore, Maryland asbestos lawyer at Matthew E. Kiely to schedule a consultation.
