Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

New Asbestos Cancer Test

Researchers at Oxford University claim that they have made a better test for asbestos related cancer. The test looks at levels of a protein that is associated with cancer in the fluid of the lungs.

The current method of diagnosis is called pleural fluid cytology. This looks at the fluid in the lungs to determine whether or not cancer cells are present. However, it is not very sensitive and can miss the cells fairly often.
