Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the lungs and the lung cavity most often associated with occupational asbestos exposure.
The autopsy includes tissue sampling and submission of tissue for expert analysis, a step that is often required by legal counsel.
The family often selects an attorney prior to the death. Coordination of the details of the examination and tissue submission are typically carried out by in consultation with the attorney and pulmonary pathologist who specializes in examination of these particular tumors.
